In the directives for the Punjab schools, the government had ordered holidays only for children till March 31 and staff, including teachers, were still reporting for administrative work and evaluation of answer sheets.
In the written orders issued by the PSEB, teachers have been allowed to take answer sheets for classes 5 and 8 with them and evaluate them at their homes. With the state government announcing the ban on public transport from Saturday, teachers reporting from villages expressed that the move came as a relief.
