A record 38 lakh students have registered this year for participation in “Pariksha Pe Charcha”, an annual interaction of students with Prime Minister Narendra Modi about issues relating to exam stress. The sixth edition of the interaction is scheduled for January 27, 2023 at Talkatora Indoor stadium in the national capital.

The registrations are at least 15 lakh higher than last year, according to Union Education Minister Dharmendra Pradhan. The minister has further informed that 20 lakh questions have been received and NCERT has shortlisted the questions on various topics ranging from family pressure, stress management, prevention of unfair means, how to stay healthy and fit, and career selection.

“Pariksha Pe Charcha has strengthened as a mass movement over the years and the quantum jump in student participation is an evidence. The unique and popular initiative has enhanced students’ self-confidence, helped them manage stress and be healthy and fit. About 2,400 students shall benefit from the words of wisdom of the Prime Minister. At the same time, crores of students will watch the programme live from their respective schools,” Pradhan added.
