Erode: Tamil Nadu minister of school education and youth development KA Sengottiyan on Wednesday (July 29) said there will be no admission in government, government-aided and private schools for now because of the COVID-19 scare.

Only after the schools are reopened would there be admission of students, he said.

Already, he said, some schools, mainly private ones, have been instructed to not release the marks of Plus-two students but some schools have done that. The education department would take action against those schools, the minister said.

Referring to the decision of the state government to declare the Kodiveri Dam as a tourist spot, he said steps have been taken in that regard at a cost of Rs 2.59 crore and the work has begun.

The river Bhavani water is stored in the Kodiveri reservoir for irrigation and drinking purposes, he said. 'Bhoomi pooja' was conducted for a number of schemes in Gobichettipalayam constituency.
