In both the urban and rural areas of India, the education system is still in its infancy. The midday meal is a programme developed to encourage students to continue their study. To combat pandemic, the government implemented a countrywide lockdown on March 25, 2020., which has had a significant influence on schooling. After China, India has the world's second-largest educational system. As according UNESCO, 63 million instructors in 165 countries were impacted. A number of 1.3 billion students were unable to attend the school or institutions throughout the globe, with nearly 320 million students in India alone. It has shifted the old educational system to a paradigm based on educational technology, in which instruction and evaluations are done online. Pandemic has both beneficial and bad effects on the Indian educational system. The purpose of this study is to examine the impact of pandemic on the Indian educational system.
