CBSE to conduct virtual inspection of schools

CBSE 2020

The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has decided to conduct virtual inspection of schools. The regular inspections of schools have been delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic across the country.

The board has also decided that all inspections will be completed within 10 days of the formation of the inspection committee for each school. The CBSE has notified the introduction of ‘virtual inspection’ for up-gradation of affiliation for sessions up to 2021-22.

The announcement was made by Union education minister, Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank, on Twitter, wrote that the step will bring relief to schools during COVID-19.

The Minister added that the virtual inspection will prove to be a beneficial step in the educational interest of children, saving time spent on the physical inspection and ensuring a quick and smooth process of school affiliation.
