CBSE Revises the Amendment Rules For Corrections
The school board has renewed the rules for amending the student’s details like name, mothers name, father’s name or the date of birth. The time limit for making these changes has been extended for all the students who appeared for the board exam for X or XII in and after the year 2015. As per the notifications, this time limit is also applicable to the students who are currently appearing on the board exams. Also, it has been applied to all the pending CBSE cases of updating.
This new rule for corrections in the personal details of the students has been formulated by the board with the motto of reducing the number of cases of correction submitted to the board every year. It has been noticed that students were taking wrongful advantage of the regulation’s norm to correct their personal details. Earlier students were allowed to send the request for correction of their name, mother’s name, father’s name, and date of birth.
Taking advantage of this opportunity, many students were noticed to create a false identity and fool the board. After analysis of this problem, the board has decided to put a time limit on the issue of corrections. Now students can only update the request to change their credentials with the CBSE board within the time window of 5 years after the declaration of the results.
Students can now Update their Information and file for correction of their personal information with CBSE board within the time window of 5 years after the declaration of the results of Xth and XII board. This new norm is implemented to reduce the cases of fraud.
