New Delhi: Due
to the ongoing pandemic, the Maharashtra government has reduced the syllabus of
class 10 and class 12 state board by 25 per cent, for this academic year.
“Inspite of the the nation wide crisis owing to Covid-19 for the year 2020-21
we started the academic year from 15 June. Inspite of the closure of the
schools, we have tried to keep open the education system through various
methods,” Minister of School Education Varsha Gaikwad said
to ensure that the students do not come under pressure under the present
scenario, we have decided that from the 1st standard to the 12th standard there
will be 25% reduction in the school syllabus,” she asserted. “The
information on syllabus cut has been given to the director of the state
education board. The complete information is also available on the website,”
she said. Prior to this, the Uttar Pradesh State Education Board had
decided to reduce the 30 per cent syllabus of Class 10 and 12 for the academic
year 2020-21 as regular classes still appear a far-fetched dream.
