The Delhi Commission for Protection of Child Rights (DCPCR) has demanded waiving of CBSE Board Examination fees of students of class 10th and 12th. A letter has been written by the Commission to the CBSE chief in this regard. In this, the commission has requested to waive the fees of students studying in government schools or reduce them to at least 75 percent.
In this letter written by DCPCR President Anurag Kundu, CBSE has been told that unemployment rate has increased due to Kovid-19. In September, it was 12.5 per cent in Delhi. Many people have lost their jobs. Families associated with the unorganized sector are the worst affected. Salary cuts are happening. Due to poverty and unemployment, it is difficult for the families of students to pay the fee for the CBSE board examination. DCPCR demands that the students fees be waived.
