CBSE directs board exam centres to make proper arrangements in view of heatwave, Covid-19



The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) directed its board examination centres to make proper arrangements for handling the heatwave situation and the possibility of COVID-19 spread.

The CBSE class 10 and 12 board exams for the second term began on Tuesday in the country and abroad after two years of pandemic-induced disruptions.

“The board has paid Rs 5,000 fixed and Rs 5 per candidate per day for the examination day to make proper arrangements to avoid spread of covid, it is requested that full proof arrangements may be made at the examination centre and covid protocols may be followed strictly as given in the guidelines for centre superintendents and as instructed by the concerned state government,” CBSE Exam Controller Sanyam Bhardwaj said in a letter to superintendents of examination centres.

“The CBSE has also decided to pay Rs 2 per candidate per day for making available potable water, hence proper arrangements for drinking water may be made at the examination centre. Your personal intervention for making arrangements in the matter and otherwise will help in maintaining the better health index of the students and staff,” he added.

“CBSE has made elaborate arrangements for the conduct of examinations in India and 26 countries. Since the exams are being conducted after covid, the board has made all arrangements for its smooth conduct. Because of covid, these examinations are being conducted in April, May and June 2022,” Bhardwaj said.
