The Telangana government on Friday said it would come out with a clear policy by July 13 on the commencement of the academic year and also the conduct of online classes for students of government and private schools.

A division bench of Chief Justice Raghvendra Singh Chauhan and Justice B Vijaysen Reddy was hearing a public interest litigation (PIL) filed by Hyderabad School Parents Association challenging the holding of online classes by private schools and also a collection of term fees by them.

The government made the submission after the bench asked it to come out with a clear stand on whether it has framed any policy on imparting education online.

The High Court said while rules are being framed by governments, ground realities should be taken into consideration.

Furthermore, the court also reportedly asked the petitioner to implead and make the union government, CBSE and other parties so that their stand can also be known. During the court hearing, the bench asked if the state government was yet to take a decision on online classes with no academic year being announced then why virtual classes were being allowed. The Telangana government, on the other hand, reportedly informed that the Centre has issued guidelines not to commence the academic year till July 31.
