Chandigarh: The Issue of non-declaration of results of 113 children appeared for Class X CBSE examination through St Kabir Public School has reached the Chandigarh Commission for Protection of Child Rights. The complaint has been filed by some of the harried parents through advocate P P Singh of Sector 11 in Chandigarh. Advocate P P Singh said that he has filed a complaint with child rights protection commission Chandigarh as some of the harried parents had approached him. On his complaint, he stated that the CBSE declared the Class X results all over the country on May 28 at around 12 pm.
However, the results of one school, namely St Kabir Public School, Chandigarh, were held back and the CBSE website showed “RL” (result later), without assigning any reason. Harried students of Class X rushed to the school to find out their fate, but the school authorities did not give any satisfactory answer leading to untold anxiety and tension in the child’s mind. Pankaj Chandghotia, a parent said, “It is very unfortunate that the children are still being kept in the dark. Why are the concerned authorities not disclosing the real reason for delay. This is unnecessarily adding to the turmoil in the child’s mind. This calls for complaint with protection of child rights commission.” The children are still not aware of the results for the examination they appeared for.
Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) Class X result of St Kabir Public School have been further held back allegedly due to late submission of internal marks of those who appeared for the exam. However, St Kabir Public School management cited ‘technical reasons’ behind the delay. Advocate P P Singh said, “It is the duty of the school to get the results declared. By not doing so on time, the school had put the children under stress and mental torture. Parents of as many as 113 students of St Kabir Public School, Sector 26, who had appeared for school-based Class X exams of the Central Board of Secondary Education, are a harried lot due to the inordinate delay in the result because of which we have lodged a complaint with protection of child rights commission.”
The advocate also added that some of the parents have also written to the secretary, Department of School Education and Literacy, CBSE, New Delhi, stating the delay has led to harassment and mental torture of students as well as parents. Parents have cited the school’s excuse of “technical error and interdepartmental communication gap” as most “ridiculous”, the complaint mentions the students had to pay for the negligence on part of the school management, said P P Singh.
