School timings likely to be changed in Bengaluru to ease traffic


The Karnataka government is planning to adjust the timing of Bengaluru schools in order to alleviate traffic congestion. The state’s education department has convened a meeting with stakeholders to discuss the school timings. The Karnataka Education Department has also scheduled another meeting with the Association of Private Schools, the Association of School Vehicles, and parents on 5th October to take their views on school timings.

The decision has been prompted by a recent high court order that directed the state government to revise school and industrial establishment timings to address traffic issues in Bengaluru.
