Uttar Pradesh: All students up to class 8 to be promoted to next class without appearing in examinations

The state's government has also postponed the evaluation of answer sheets for 2020 high school and intermediate examinations till 2 April.

After shutting down all the educational institutions and suspending all the ongoing examinations due to the coronavirus epidemic scare, the Yogi government in Uttar Pradesh has now decided that all the students up to class 8 will be promoted to the next classes without examinations. The decision was taken after the state government cancelled all examinations in the state on Tuesday.

Deputy Chief Minister of UP, Dinesh Sharma, who handles the education portfolio said that the decision has been taken in view of the closure of schools in the state. “The students will be promoted on the basis of the performance all year round.”

The additional chief secretary Renuka Kumar issued the directive on Tuesday. The state’s government has also postponed the evaluation of answer sheets for 2020 high school and intermediate examinations till 2 April.

The decision came after a group of teachers was reported maintaining distance from the evaluation centres due to coronavirus scare. The results of high school and intermediate will be postponed due to the late evaluation process this year.

Earlier, the Uttar Pradesh government banned all forms of protest and demonstrations in the state in order to avoid the general public from being infected by the novel coronavirus. The govt directed for the closure of all schools, colleges, and educational institutions till April 2, while also suspending all competitive and academic board examinations. Earlier, the schools and colleges were closed till March 22 even as the ongoing exams were not disturbed.

Meanwhile, the UP government also announced to compensate daily wage earners with state support whose livelihoods will be affected due to lockdown. Taking to Twitter, UP CM Yogi Adityanath informed that the loss of wages will be deposited in their bank accounts for which a committee has been set up.

The Yogi government has also announced that the state government will bear the medical expenses of those infected with the deadly virus and there will be no deduction of salary for those patients who take leave for coronavirus treatment.

UP’s Power minister Shrikant Sharma clarified that the three-member committee, headed by the UP finance minister and comprising the state agriculture and labour ministers, has been asked by chief minister Yogi Adityanath to submit a report within three days.

Uttar Pradesh has so far reported 16 positive cases of coronavirus till now, 5 of whom have been cured. CM Yogi Adityanath had suggested people to avoid gatherings and not to panic on the issue. All the cinema halls and multiplexes have also been ordered to close down till April 2 in UP.
