In a much needed relief to parents and schools, the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has pushed the deadline for payment of fees for Board exams to October 31, 2020. Whereas late fee payment will be allowed from November 1 to November 7, but with a fine. Many parents have lost their jobs this year due to the pandemic and are struggling to pay the fees of their children. Notably, certain organisations and individuals are offering support to some parents and schools for the fee payment. Class 10 and 12 Boards are important stepping stones in a student’s career and it is commendable to see some people trying to ensure that learning doesn’t stop for anyone.
