Owing to the travel restrictions during COVID-19 lockdown in the country, the minister said these students will not be required to commute to their previous board exam centre. Regarding the modalities of registering for this facility, Nishank said that the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) will soon be making announcements in this regards.

The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) will issue a notification to clear out the modalities for registration for such requests, he said.

The board exams 2020, which were postponed when a lockdown was clamped to control the spread of Coronavirus on March 25 after PM Narendra Modi’s late-night announcement the day before, will now be held from July 1 to July 15.
