After the cancellation of CBSE 12th examination by the central government, now the 10th and 12th board examinations have been canceled in Rajasthan also. This decision has been taken on Wednesday after brainstorming in the Gehlot cabinet meeting. This time more than 21.58 lakh students had applied for both the board exams. In this, there are about 12 lakh students in 10th and about 9.15 lakh students in 12th.

After the cancellation of the board examinations in the cabinet meeting, other options were also discussed for preparing the results. However, it is not yet clear whether the board will prepare the results of the students on some basis. Earlier, Congress General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi had suggested the state governments to postpone the board examinations. After the suggestion of Priyanka Gandhi, it was believed that the Gehlot government can take a decision accordingly.
