The Department of School Education in Assam issued a notification on September 29, announcing that all state schools will actively celebrate Gandhi Jayanti, as per reports.

The notice further orders the schools to conduct various events and activities on Gandhi Jayanti to remind students of the importance of inclusive unity and the teachings of the Mahatma.
