Hindi, Gujarati medium schools united by board, divided by vacations
Not only on different days, this trend was also followed for entire on month in Urdu and Gujarati medium schools during Ramzan that coincides with the Hindu religious month of Shravan that falls in the month of July-August. During this month, students of Urdu medium schools were given an exemption of three hours (or half day) on Fridays while students of Gujarati medium on Mondays.
Till this academic year, this three-hour exemption was given for the entire month which was replaced by only one day in a week (Monday or Friday) keeping in mind the minimum teaching hours for students stipulated by the Right to Education Act. Though this change was opposed by the both the students and teaching faculty, it was implemented in all 464 municipal schools.
