Delhi to have its own education board

New Delhi: Delhi will soon have its own education board that will not be a replacement for the CBSE but a next generation board to help students prepare for entrance examinations like JEE and NEET, Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia said.

The Delhi government envisions the board to be the answer to the current situation where students prepare for board examinations with the help of schools but have to take the help of coaching centres to clear their engineering and medical entrance exams, he said.

"This is an irony but I see it as a blessing that there is no education board in Delhi. We are preparing to give Delhi its own education board.

"We thought about this in 2015 itself and even started working towards it. However, when we saw the condition of the buildings and got a sense of the scholastic environment in the classes, we realised that we had to first work on improving the infrastructure".
