The Delhi Disaster Management Authority has ordered all the schools, colleges, and government offices for non-essential services to remain closed till July 16.
Due to the flooding caused by the Yamuna River in Delhi, the Delhi Disaster Management Authority has directed the closure of all schools, colleges, and non-essential government offices until July 16. Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal provided an update during a meeting, stating that more than 20,000 individuals have been relocated to relief camps. Currently, 50 boats are deployed for rescue operations, with additional boats to be added if required.
Kejriwal emphasized the closure of “All schools, colleges, and universities till Sunday,” as reported by PTI. To address the challenges faced by people in relief camps, the chief minister announced plans to shift them to school buildings that have appropriate toilet facilities.
In addition to Delhi, all schools in Noida and Greater Noida are closed on July 14. The recent monsoon rains in northern India have caused extensive damage, including waterlogging, road collapses, collapsed homes, and severe traffic congestion.
