HBSE Class 10 Compartment, DElED Exams Deferred Due to Nuh Violence, Revised Dates Soon
The Board of Secondary Education, Haryana, has taken the decision to postpone the Class 10 compartment exams and DElEd exam for the first year, reappear, and special chance originally scheduled for August 1 and August 2. This postponement is in response to the recent Nuh violence. The decision, jointly made by the board chairman VP Yadav and secretary Krishna Kumar, was influenced by the situation on the ground.
Initially, the plan was to delay the secondary (educational) and DElEd (regular/re-appear/mercy chance) exams specifically in the examination centers located in Nuh and Palwal districts, due to the imposition of Section-144 and curfew in those areas. However, given the ongoing circumstances, the Class 10 English and Hindi exams, as well as the DElEd (regular/re-appear/mercy chance) examinations set for the same dates across the entire state, have now been postponed indefinitely. Chairman VP Yadav of the HBSE has ensured that new dates for the postponed exams will be announced in due course. He has advised all affected students to frequently check the official board website for updates regarding the rescheduled exam dates.
The official notification clarifies, "The Secondary (Educational) and D.El.Ed (1st and 2nd year) examinations scheduled for July 2023 by the Haryana Board of School Education have been postponed in the entirety of Nuh district, Haryana, due to a violent incident. The examinations initially slated for August 1, 2023, and August 2, 2023, have been suspended throughout the entire state. Revised dates for these examinations will be communicated shortly."
The Class 10 improvement exams for 2023 and DElEd exams began on July 27. The original schedule had the DElEd exams concluding on August 22, while the Class 10 improvement exams for 2023 were supposed to continue until August 4. Unfortunately, a Vishva Hindu Parishad (VHP) rally on Monday escalated into communal violence, resulting in the tragic loss of at least five lives and injuries to numerous others. In response to the escalating tension, a police team en route from Gurugram to Nuh, tasked with maintaining law and order, had their vehicle set ablaze, leading to the unfortunate loss of two home guards' lives. In light of the tense situation, internet services have been temporarily suspended, and Section 144 has been enforced in Nuh and Gurugram. The unrest was triggered by the alleged presence of Monu Manesar, a prominent cow vigilante, during the VHP’s ‘Shobha Yatra’ rally.
