The Rajasthan Education Department has released the annual academic calendar, outlining the schedule for the upcoming year. According to the calendar, schools will be closed for a total of 125 days, excluding holidays. This means that students will have 240 days of schooling throughout the year. With summer vacations coming to an end, students have returned to school, and the education department has shared the holiday dates for the academic year.
