AAP to bear board exam fees of all students of Delhi Govt schools


New Delhi, The Cabinet on Monday decided that Delhi government will bear the board examination fees of all the students belonging to the Delhi government schools. The decision was taken at the Cabinet meeting, chaired by Chief Minister and Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) national convenor Arvind Kejriwal.

‘Now, the Delhi government schools situated in the NDMC and Delhi Cantonment areas are also included under the purview of this decision. We have also analysed the results of all the subjects of the Delhi government schools and found out that the students are scoring above 95 per cent in all subjects other than Mathematics and Science. However, the results in these two subjects have gone down, with students scoring less than 76 per cent in Mathematics,’ Mr Kejriwal said.

‘The Delhi government has decided to hold extra coaching classes in schools so that the results in the subjects that are lagging behind can be brought on par with the scoring subjects. Extra coaching classes will also be held for students who have obtained compartment or have flunked in the board examinations,’ the CM added.
