He also shared information regarding conducting the remaining exams as well as a new plan for classes 10 and 12 syllabus for the new academic session.
CBSE is expected to release an official notice regarding the changes.
Dr. Bhardwaj said that the board is planning to resume the evaluation work within four days of the removal of the lockdown in the country. With this, the board is also considering the feasibility of work from home for the teachers.
Dr. Bhardwaj also said that the dates will be shared after the approval from the Ministry of Human Resource Development based on the situation.
