The Prime Minister said that the decision on the CBSE Class 12 examination has been taken in the interest of the students. He said that Kovid-19 has affected the academic calendar and the issue of board exams is causing extreme anxiety and tension in students, parents and teachers, which should be abolished.
The PM said that the situation of Kovid-19 Mahamari across the country is constantly changing. However, as the number of new cases in the country is decreasing and some states are managing the situation through effective micro-control, some states still opt for the lockout. In such a situation, students, parents and teachers are naturally concerned about the health of the students.

I wish all the students the very best in their careers. I would like to reiterate safety and career of students as of paramount importance for honourable Modi Ji’s Government. (2/2)
