HYDERABAD: The Telangana High Court on Tuesday gave the green signal for physical instruction at schools and other educational institutions but asked the government to make it voluntary.

The court, issuing interim directions on a PIL against reopening of educational institutions from September 1, said that the government should not put pressure on the parents to send their children to schools or colleges and that it should not take action either against the students who do not attend schools or colleges, or the managements of the educational institutions.
