Amid a surge in COVID-19 cases in Maharashtra, the state government has decided to cancel Class 10 board exam, Minister for Primary and Secondary Education Varsha Gaikwad said on Tuesday. The decision was taken at a meeting of the state cabinet here.

In a televised message, she said, "The (Class 10 board) exam is cancelled. However, to bring parity across various higher secondary education boards, including of Maharashtra as well as central and international boards, a meeting (of stakeholders) will be called to finalise a roadmap."
