Udupi DC also declared a holiday for all schools and colleges including Anganwadi. All the private and government schools, colleges and degree colleges will remain close on July 6 due to heavy rainfall which is expected to hit the district the next two days.

    As like last year, declaration of advance holidays depending on IMD predictions is a farce!

    When school/colleges are given holiday in advance because of rain..... there wont be rain the next day. It happened last time too when our Senthil sir was declaring holiday because of the heavy rain.... children were seen roaming/playing outside. Good way to control rain...2020/2021.....children were at home because of corona during rainy season.....
