Tamil Nadu, Education Minister says no mobile phones will be allowed in school campus.
The Tamil Nadu Education Minister, Anbil Mahesh Poyyamozhi, stated that Mobile phones are not permitted to be brought to school by students. The phones would be confiscated from the students if they were brought, and they would not be released.
Anbil Mahesh Poyyamozhi, the Tamil Nadu School Education Minister, advised students on Tuesday not to bring cellphones to class, saying that if they did, they would be seized.
Despite the fact that mobile phones have become a common component in attending online classes for the past two years as a result of the pandemic, he claims there have been several diversions.
“Educational curricula should rejuvenate the youthful minds,” he remarked.
“It is forbidden for students to bring their cellphones to school.” The phones would be confiscated from the students if they were brought, and they would not be returned,” Poyyamozhi stated.
The Minister’s warning comes just one day after primary and secondary schools reopened on Monday.
According to him, the current step is in line with an announcement he made in the State Assembly (in May) that pupils would not bring cellphones to class, and that a circular has already been issued to schools in this regard.
Mr Poyyamozhi told reporters after giving welfare help to the public that plans had been made for non-governmental organisations (NGOs) and police personnel to attend special classes during the first few days, particularly for classes 11 and 12.
