The Nagaland State Council of Educational Research and Training (SCERT) has revised the guidelines of the Non Detention Policy (NDP) with immediate effect. Under the revised guidelines the students will be declared either Qualified or Needs Improvement (Pass or Detained) which means that a student can be detained if the school feels he is not qualified to be promoted to next class.
Director of SCERT Nagaland, Vipralhou Kesiezie informed that the department made the changes for the betterment of the education structure. Under the RTE act 2009 for elementary education, SCERT has reviewed the non detention policy and made the changes.
