Bengaluru, Oct 11: The state government Monday hinted at starting schools in Karnataka for classes 1 to 5 after Dasara.
Primary and Secondary Education Minister BC Nagesh said, "We will be convening a meeting of the technical committee after the Dasara festival. In the meeting, we will request them to give permission to start schools for classes 1 to 5."
He told reporters that if the technical committee does not give its permission, then it will be requested to grant permission to start schools for classes 3 to 5.
The government will also restart the midday meal programme after Dasara vacation, Nagesh said.
Replying to another query, he said a decision on setting up a school fee regulation committee will be taken after receiving the fee model report from other states.
