Jaipur, May 8 (PTI) Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot reiterated on Friday that private schools should not strike off names of children from rolls if their parents are unable to deposit fees due to the ongoing lockdown.

He asked the education department to find ways in which private schools can provide relief to students in fees and other charges.

The chief minister said a decision will be made regarding the examinations of Rajasthan Board of Secondary Education for Class 10 and 12 in consideration with the CBSE’s schedule so that uniformity is maintained in both the board exams.
