“The Delhi government has been taking NIOS as an option for our students in some schools. They have study centres spread across different parts of the country which operate as in-person support classes.

“In 2021 they decided to parallelly offer this study support through online mode also without abolishing its in-person study centres," the Delhi government said in a statement.

It said that during the pandemic, most of the schools moved to online teaching and after the pandemic, many of them still follow the hybrid approach.

"If on the basis of offering online study classes as one of the options to its students, NIOS claims that it is now a completely virtual school then all the best to them," it said.
