Supreme Court says ‘Alarming situation in Kerala’


Justice Khanwilkar asks Kerala to not have offline exams for class XI

Even as Kerala is considering reopening schools by October, the Supreme Court ordered the offline exams for std XI to be paused considering the high number of cases in Kerala. “Prima facie we find force in submission made by petitioner that the state government has not seriously considered the prevailing situation before having physical exam proposed to be conducted in September this year.” Kerala presently accounts for nearly 70% of the cases in the country, Justice Khanwilkar stated, adding that “children of tender age can’t be exposed to such risk,” LiveLaw reported.

General Education Minister V Sivankutty said that while Std XI offline exams are to be put on hold, a final decision on reopening of schools will be taken only after discussions with Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan and after considering the reports submitted by the expert panel.
