The exams, that were scheduled to be held from July 1 to July 15 will be conducted as and when the situation is suitable to conduct the exams, the CBSE Board told the Supreme Court. Giving its final word on the cancellation of CBSE Board Exam 2020, the CBSE Board said the scheme has been set up where class 12 students will be assessed on the basis of the last 3 exams. CBSE Board Class 12 students will also have an option to opt for exams that are to be conducted later.
The Supreme Court, meanwhile, has taken note of Centre's submission and has asked the CBSE Board to issue fresh notification clarifying details of Class XII board exams.
In wake of the coronavirus outbreak, students associated with the CBSE Board and their parents had appealed to the Supreme Court to cancel the pending CBSE exams 2020.
However, the CBSE Board had not given an official confirmation on the cancellation of pending CBSE Board Class 10 and CBSE Board Class 12 exams. Lakhs of students, who had appeared for the CBSE Board Exam 2020 were waiting for the CBSE Board's word on the pending CBSE Board exams.
Officials of the CBSE Board had already held a meeting with the HRD Ministry and other academic experts, regarding the cancellation of the pending CBSE Board Exams.
Earlier, the Supreme Court had asked CBSE to announce its final stand on holding of the pending examinations while addressing a petition filed by concerned parents about concerns regarding safety and health of their children, if exams are held during the pandemic.

Now that the CBSE Board has cancelled the CBSE Board Class 10 and CBSE Class 12 Board exams, sources close to the CBSE Board have said the students will be directly promoted to the next class, on the basis of internal assessment, or on the basis of marks scored in the pre-board exams.
For CBSE Board Class 12 exams, they had said the exams are very likely to be postponed and not cancelled, as Class 12 board exams hold a lot of relevance for seeking admissions for higher studies post-school.

Delhi govt revises COVID response House to house screening by Jul 6 rigorous monitoring
PTI June 24, 2020 22:40 IST
New Delhi, Jun 24 (PTI) With the number of coronavirus cases continuing to rise in the national capital, the Delhi government Wednesday issued an eight-point revised COVID-19 response plan to contain the spread of the disease.
Among other things, the revised plans include completing house-to-house screening for coronavirus by July 6, admitting COVID-19 positive patients in highly dense area to care centres and CCTV/drone monitoring to prohibit movement inside containment zones.
The plan also states that highly suspected cases testing negative on Rapid Antigen Test should be examined again using the gold standard RT-PCR test.
A high-level committee set up by Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Sunday recommended quarantine of contacts of all COVID-19 positive cases in Delhi and re-mapping of all containment zones to check the rapid spread of the coronavirus infection in the national capital.
According to the revised plan, COVID-19 positive patient or cluster cases in the highly dense areas will be sent to the Covid Care Centres as per the Health Ministry's guidelines.
According to the revised response plan, the review and redesigning of containment zones will be done by June 26.
A house-to-house screening will be completed by June 30 in containment zones and for the rest of Delhi by July 6, in a mammoth exercise, as per the revised plan.
The plan document states that cases reported from containment zone represent only 19 per cent of the infections, which implies the successful implementation of containment strategies in Delhi.
"Epidemiological analysis of new cases shows that majority of cases are presenting as isolated sporadic cases and become cluster of cases. Forty-five per cent of the cases are showing features of clustering," is says.
Active case search in containment zones and vigorous contact tracing of COVID positive patients will be undertaken to analyse the reasons for clustering, the plan said.
The containment zones will be redefined in line with the guidelines of the National Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) and active case search will be done in containment zones.
"Testing of suspects will be augmented by universal application of Rapid Antigen Test. An Incident Command System/District level COVID Control Room lead by DM of the concerned district and technically assisted by Senior Public Health Specialist deputed from either MCD (DHO) Medical Colleges faculty with IT Support and manpower will be established at each DM office," the plan said.
Rapid antigen test which is currently being utilised for screening of population in the containment zones as per ICMR guidelines shall be strictly followed, it said.
According to the recommendations of the MHA committee, the assessment of the existing containment zoning plan and developing a revised zoning plan with adequate buffer zones as per Health Ministry's guidelines will be completed by June 26.
“A geographical area once declared as containment zones shall follow the strict containment (perimeter control) with active case search inside the containment zones and there shall be a sufficient surrounding buffer zone," it said.
Teams will be deployed for daily case search, testing and isolation. According to the plan, police shall be deployed to enforce physical distancing measures and prevention of intermixing of the population inside the containment zones. The policemen will have to ensure strict perimeter control and "absolute restriction of outward and inward movement of the population".
The administration will have to supply essential commodities inside the containment zones and there shall be strict CCTV/drone monitoring to prohibit movement inside, the plan said.
"Imposing fine on those breaching the rules as is being done currently shall be further augmented," it said.
Currently, there are 266 containment zones in the national capital.
From Friday-Sunday, 3,000 or more fresh cases were being reported per day in the national capital.
On Monday, 2,909 cases were recorded. On Tuesday, Delhi reported the highest single-day spike of cases of 3,947 while on Wednesday, 3,788 fresh cases were reported taking the tally over the 70,000 mark.

हिमाचल: बसों में अब 100 फीसदी सवारियां बैठाने को सैद्धांतिक मंजूरी
अमर उजाला नेटवर्क, शिमला
Updated Fri, 26 Jun 2020 10:27 AM IST
हिमाचल में बसों में अब 100 फीसदी सवारियां बैठाने को कैबिनेट ने सैद्धांतिक मंजूरी दे दी है। कैबिनेट बैठक में परिवहन निगम और निजी बस ऑपरेटरों की वास्तविक स्थिति पर प्रस्तुति के बाद सरकार ने यह मंजूरी दी है। निजी बस ऑपरेटरों को 20 लाख रुपये तक कार्यशील पूंजी (वर्किंग कैपिटल लोन) देने पर भी सहमति बनी। लोन का 50 फीसदी ब्याज सरकार वहन करेगी। पहले साल निजी ऑपरेटरों को कोई ब्याज नहीं देना होगा।
दूसरे साल 50 फीसदी और तीसरी और चौथे साल पूरा ब्याज देना होगा। प्रति बस दो लाख तक लोन लिया जा सकेगा। अब विस्तृत प्रस्ताव को कैबिनेट या फिर सरकार के पास लाया जाना है। एक जुलाई से इस व्यवस्था को लागू किया जा सकता है। सूबे में निजी बस ऑपरेटर किराया बढ़ाने की मांग कर रहे थे। इनका तर्क है कि बसों में 60 फीसदी सवारियां बैठाने से न तो गाड़ी की मरम्मत का खर्च निकलेगा और न चालक-परिचालकों की तनख्वाह दे सकेंगे। ऐसे में सरकार ने बसों की मेंटेनेंस और अन्य खर्चों के लिए लोन देने का फैसला किया है।
सितंबर तक नहीं लगेगा ग्रीन सेस और फिटनेस फीस
कैबिनेट ने वाहन मालिकों को ग्रीन सेस और फिटनेस फीस सितंबर तक माफ करने का फैसला लिया है। वाहन मालिकों से यह फीस 800 से 1000 रुपये तक ली जाती है। वाहनों की पासिंग को अब पेंट कराने की जरूरत नहीं होगी। सिर्फ मेकेनिक पार्ट्स ठीक होने चाहिए। सरकार ने छोटे-बड़े वाहनों पर टैक्स पर लगाई जाने वाली पेनल्टी भी माफ कर दी है।
हिमाचल में वाहन शुल्क हुआ महंगा
सरकार ने हिमाचल में वाहन पंजीकरण शुल्क महंगा कर दिया है। पहले यह शुल्क ढाई से 4 फीसदी तक लिया जाता था। अब इसे बढ़ाकर 7 से 10 फीसदी किया है। 50 हजार तक मोटरसाइकल पर 7 फीसदी, 50 हजार से 2 लाख तक 8 फीसदी, दो लाख व इससे ज्यादा तक 10 फीसदी पंजीकरण शुल्क लगेगा। कार पर शुल्क 8 से 10 फीसदी किया है। बसों में भी 10 फीसदी तक शुल्क वसूल किया जाएगा।
अब 100 फीसदी लगेगी कंपोजिट फीस
बाहरी राज्यों से सवारियां लेकर हिमाचल आने वाली छोटी-बड़ी बसों से सरकार 100 फीस कंपोजिट फीस लेगी। पहले एक महीने हिमाचल आने पर ऑपरेटरों से 15 दिन तक की कपोजिट फीस ली जाती थी।
