Metro train services may be allowed in the 'Unlock 4' phase beginning Sept. 1, but schools and colleges are unlikely to reopen anytime soon, officials said on Monday.

Bars, which are so far not allowed to reopen, may be permitted to sell liquor over the counter for take away.

Metro rail services may be allowed from Sept. 1 when the 'Unlock 4' phase in the graded reopening from the coronavirus-induced lockdown begins, but schools and colleges will not reopen immediately, an official said.

Metro services were suspended in late March to combat the spread of the novel coronavirus, which has infected more than 31 lakh people in the country so far.
