Furthermore, the School and Mass Education department has instructed all primary, secondary, and higher secondary schools, including private institutions, to conduct morning classes from 7 AM to 11:30 AM starting from April 2nd.

Four locations within the state have recorded temperatures surpassing 40 degrees Celsius, with Malkangiri emerging as the hottest location at 41 degrees Celsius.
