Schools, colleges and other public places are strictly given the orders to remain shut until March 31. However, the headmasters of two state-run schools in Kolkata have been transferred for allegedly violating coronavirus prevention guidelines during distribution of rice and potato under mid-day meal scheme.
In separate letters to the two teachers, the WBBSE said, the headmasters had made “clear violation” of government guidelines which had stipulated only guardians would be allowed to collect rice and potato, 2 kg for each student, for a month, and not students “in view of the emergent situation”.
