Reports of summer vacation in Kashmir false

Fresh report: Summer vacation announced in Kashmir

SRINAGAR: Reports on Saturday claiming that the government had announced a 17-day-long summer vacation for schools in Kashmir province were false.

Director of School Education Kashmir, Shah Faesal, confirmed to JandK Now that the directorate had not yet announced summer vacation in the region.

People earlier claimed that a television channel this evening announced the summer vacation, from July 2 to July 17.

Pertinently, government and private schools in Kashmir do not usually close for summer vacation for more than ten days, and it would be highly unlikely that the government would announce a long summer vacation.
