Several schools reopened here on Tuesday after remaining closed for over three months due to the unannounced shutdown following the Centre’s decision to abrogate Article 370 provisions, even as life was inching towards normalcy in Kashmir, officials said.

The move by several private schools to resume classes came as public transport had started to ply in the Valley and life was fast returning to normalcy, they said.

The managements have decided to open the schools from 10 am to 1 pm and students have been asked to come without wearing the uniform, the officials said.

The city and most areas elsewhere in the Valley saw a significant improvement in the movement of public transport on Monday.

The officials said the intra-district as well as the inter-district connectivity had improved significantly.

Auto-rickshaws and inter-district cabs had been plying for a while now, but in the last few days, the movement of intra-district cabs across the Valley had also increased, they added.

The officials said the private transport was plying unhindered.

On Sunday, the rail service from Srinagar to Banihal also resumed. PTI
