Schools, colleges and universities in Assam will reopen from November 1, state Education Minister Himanta Biswa Sharma announced today.
The Assam Government, today October 7, announced that schools, colleges and universities in the state will reopen for face-to-face learning from November 1. The Education Minister Himanta Biswa Sharma has confirmed the date to reopen schools and other educational institutions in the state. Mr Sharma said that students from Class 6 to university level will be able to visit their institutions to continue their classes from November 1.

Assam Government had earlier last month allowed the students of Classes 9 to 12 to attend schools for doubt clearing sessions.
The Education Minister, as per Sentinel, also said that the standard operating procedures , or guidelines, as to how the educational institutions will function will be issued between October 15 and 20.
