The Delhi government has withdrawn an order on extended winter holidays in schools

Due to the frigid weather, the winter holiday at all public and private educational institutions in Delhi, has been prolonged till January 10, according to Delhi's Directorate of Education.

The Delhi administration canceled an order to prolong the winter holiday in schools in the national capital on Saturday, only hours after it announced an extension of the vacation till January 10. According to news agency ANI, the Delhi Department of Education confirmed that the prior order was “mistakenly” issued and that a judgment on the subject will be made on Sunday morning.

The Delhi Directorate of Education noted that winter holiday instructions would be issued in due time. “Order No.DE.23(3)/Sch.Br./2024/18, dated January 6, 2024, regarding Winter Vacation Extension, is hereby withdrawn with immediate effect.” “Additional instructions in this respect may be published in the future,” the modified directive stated.

The Delhi government had already extended the winter vacation to January 10 in all government-aided and unaided accredited private schools in the national capital territory (NCT) due to “extreme winter weather and IMD’s yellow alert.”

On Saturday, Delhi had yet another day of gloomy, foggy weather, with a midday peak temperature of 15.2 degrees Celsius and an early-morning low of 8.9 degrees.
