Press Trust of India Chennai | Updated on May 22, 2011




The State Cabinet on Sunday departed from past practice of opening Mettur dam for irrigation on June 6 and decided it would be on June 12, acceding requests from farmers associations.

This is the first time since the country became a Republic that the reservoir would be opened before June 12, an official press release said here.

The cabinet also decided to reopen schools on June 15 as it would take time to print textbooks.

It held that the proposed uniform syllabus system in school education “will not help improve the quality of education” and resolved to form an expert committee to find ways to improve it.
