Schools in Gurugram

Schools in Gurugram have resumed the classes as usual for Pre School, Pre Primary & Primary classes (Nursery to Class V).

Earlier on November 13th, Deputy Commissioner of Gurugram on X posted, "In light of the enhanced air quality in District Gurugram, the order to withdraw Pre School, Pre Primary & Primary classes (Nursery to Class V) is now lifted. Classes resume as usual, effective immediately."

After the government took over the university in April 2013, chief secretary Shiv Das Meena, who was the administrator then, oversaw the inquiry into allegations surrounding staff appointments. Sources revealed that the inquiry raised concerns about fund wastage through payment of salaries to individuals appointed without proper qualifications.

Delhi's Environment Minister Gopal Rai on Thursday said that the current scenario of air pollution in the city is likely to remain the same for the next three days due to unfavourable meteorological conditions.

In an interview to the ANI Rai said, "The current situation is such that for 2-3 days the AQI is going to remain in the 'very poor' category only because as per the prediction for tomorrow, the wind speed...will remain low...till wind speed increases, the AQI will stay in 'very poor' category."
