CHENNAI: Chief Minister MK Stalin on Tuesday announced that regular classes for standards 1 to 8 will resume from November 1.

A decision to this effect was taken considering the views expressed by the health experts, educationists, and parents that the absence of formal schooling has caused huge loss of learning as well as depression among the school children, the Chief Minister said in a statement here.  Already, regular classes for Standards 9 to 12 have been going on. 

To lessen the hardships faced by the public in visiting the State secretariat at Chennai from other parts of the State for redressing their grievances, the monthly grievance redressal day will be allowed at offices of district collectors every Monday.
