Haryana Govt Orders Closure of All Schools Till November 17, Bans Construction Activities Amid Air Pollution Crisis

Amid the rising air pollution crisis, the Manohar Lal Khattar-led Haryana government on Sunday decided to close all government and private schools.

New Delhi: The government also banned all construction activities till 17th November. The authorities have also advised the government & private offices to adopt work from home.

“The order for closure of schools, restriction on construction activities, advice to govt and private offices for adopting work from home mode will be applicable in four districts around NCT Delhi — Gurugram, Faridabad, Sonipat and Jhajjar,” the Haryana government order added.

To recall, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal had also announced the closure of all Delhi schools starting from Monday for a week.

This comes after the Supreme Court pressed the emergency button on Delhi air pollution. The Delhi government also decided to switch to work from home for 100% of the workforce starting from Monday. Private offices will be issued an advisory to go for the ‘Work From Home’ option as much as possible, Kejriwal said. No construction activity will be allowed between November 14 and 17.
