“From various sources it has come to the notice of CBSE that schools and parents are facing problems in completing LOC because of the situation created due to COVID-19 pandemic,” Bhardwaj added.

The Delhi government last week wrote to CBSE requesting for an extension of the deadline for payment of examination fees. In addition, for the 2021 board exams from October 15 to November 14.

The government had earlier written to the CBSE seeking a waiver of the examination fee for students of classes 10 and 12 in its schools. Citing financial crunch in view of the COVID-19 pandemic. However, CBSE had expressed its inability to waive the examination fees.

The letter further said due to the ongoing pandemic, a large number of parents have lost their jobs. Also, their incomes have been affected badly while their savings have already been used to meet their daily needs.
