Mumbai schools reopen - PC : My Result Plus
The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) has issued fresh guidelines in wake of the reopening of schools and colleges in Mumbai, after the state government gave nod to the proposal to resume academic activities in the state. Thus, schools will become functional in Mumbai from January 24, 2022 onwards. The BMC has stated that although students from pre-primary to Class 12 are allowed to come to the campus premises for offline classes, the same is not mandatory for everyone.

BMC declared the decision to make schools operational in Mumbai after Maharashtra Chief Minister, Uddhav Thackeray gave the green signal for the reopening of schools. State Education Minister Varsha Gaikwad had also announced the resumption of academic activities in schools, which was seconded by Aditya Thackeray's another announcement in regard to the same.
The BMC has thus issued fresh operating guidelines for all schools, the complete list of which is provided below.
