In this case, the court allowed the appeal for hearing on Tuesday. Thereafter, Justice A.M. A bench headed by Khanwilkar had directed the advance copy of the petition to the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) standing counsel and other respondents.

If offline classes are not conducted then why offline exams?

The petitioner’s lawyer told the court on Tuesday that despite the decrease in the Corona case, offline classes were not conducted. At the same time, the classes are also not completed, then how can offline examinations be conducted? These should be repealed and an alternative evaluation process should be devised.
