Winter vacation for the academic session 2023-24 was scheduled to take place from January 1 to January 15.
"However, in order to ensure that our students are not adversely affected due to the poor air quality in Delhi, a portion of winter vacation was observed from November 9 to November 18," the circular read.
The remaining portion of the winter vacation for academic session 2023-2024 is scheduled to be observed from January 1 to January 6, 2024.
