Two officials to probe CBSE class XII result fiasco




 Union Human Resource Development Minister Prakash Javadekar today said two officials will be deputed to look into discrepancies in class XII results declared by Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) in Bhubaneswar zone.

Earlier, Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik had urged the Centre to initiate urgent and necessary action on the issue of gross discrepancies of results of Class XII, published by Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE). In a letter to Javadekar, the chief minister said the students and parents are shocked at the manner in which the results have been published. “Initially, the results of thousands of students of Bhubaneswar zone was shown as withheld in the CBSE website. This caused avoidable anxiety to many students and their parents”, he added.

Patnaik said a lot of discrepancies have reportedly been notices in the subject-wise results of several students. “It is noticed that some bright students have got very low or even single digit marks in certain subjects whereas they have scored very high marks in other subjects”, he stated, adding the moderation scheme has not been applied uniformly for the students of Bhubaneswar zone. “The students and their parents are in a state of shock and disbelief and going through immense emotional trauma. Unless immediate action is taken for proper re-evaluation of the answer sheets of the affected students, they would be deprived from getting admission in the colleges across the country”, said the Chief Minister.





Editorial

Précis 2017
From asking his party men to ‘live a simple life and serve the people’ to taunting the BJP for its ‘crocodile tears’, Chief Minister and BJD supremo Naveen Patnaik has not only become politically invincible, he seems to be so in the coming years too.
