The summer vacations in Odisha were initially planned to begin on April 19 but were later revised. The state government also changed the school timings for students in classes 1 to 12 due to heat waves, and now the summer vacation will be from May 5 to June 18.
Several states in India that have not yet announced their summer vacation dates are considering closing schools urgently due to heatwaves and the alarming incidents of heatstroke and other related illnesses.
