New reports have revealed that the NDA government at the Center is currently contemplating introducing changes to the existing examination system of Class X board exams administered by the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE).
Apparently, the government plans to introduce “qualitative education full of Sanskar”. In addition, the government has also decided to start a model degree college in every block. The announcement was made by none other than the Minister of State in the HRD Ministry Ram Shankar Katheria.
“A committee has been formed to go through the existing system and the earlier system. I had received complaint from the parents and the teachers regarding the existing system. Efforts would be made to provide qualitative education full of Sanskar,” Katheria stated while addressing the press at Nagla Chandra Bhan, Mathura.
The minister arrived Mathura to attend a program on the death anniversary of former Bharatiya Jan Sangh President late Pandit Deen Dayal Upadhyay.
“Land for the [model] colleges would be provided by the state government while the funding would be done by the Union government,” he said.
When inquired if the government was planning to set up a new central university in Nagala Chandra Bhan, the minister stated: “We cannot declare a Central university in Nagla Chandra Bhan since the land has to be provided by the state government.”
On the results of the 2015 Delhi assembly election, the minister acknowledged that his party never expected such a disastrous result.
“We have accepted our defeat, however, it was not defeat of Modi,” he said to a question.
Speaking on the reforms in Ambedkar University, he said, “”There would be no compromise with admission, exams, result and administration of the university, the Vice Chancellor has been told clearly.”
