While addressing a virtual conference on Monday, Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia along with Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said the students from nursery to class 8th in the state will be promoted without exams to next class under the no-detention policy. Mr. Sisodia, who also holds the education portfolio, said the government will begin online classes of two subjects for the students who are about to enter Class 12. Regarding the promotion of Class 9 to Class 11 students, the minister said a decision will be taken after the consultation with the Central Board of Secondary Education or CBSE.
The students who are registering for the online classes will be given monetary benefits for buying data packs, the minister said. The online classes for Class 12 students will begin from the first week of April and after some time, the same will be organized for Class 10 students, the minister said.
According to the minister, from now onwards the students will receive an activity daily through SMS and IVR, and they will have to keep the activity details on a notebook as a project. “When the schools are open, the teachers will check these projects and the students will be given its weightage,” he said.
Schools and all educational institutions across Delhi have been closed due to the all India lockdown announced last week.
