Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, class 10th exams were cancelled by the board and an evaluation policy was formulated to evaluate students this year.
After some arguments, the counsel for the NGO, 'Justice for All', said that he wished to withdraw the application.
Education Minister A Suresh told reporters that they decided to cancel the exams as it was difficult to adhere to July 31 deadline set by the Supreme Court for completing the process.
The expert committee will also recommend the government if the exams will be conducted, what will be the mode of conduction and if not, what will be the mode of evaluation criteria for the assessment.
As per the schedule announced earlier, the examinations were scheduled to be held from June 7
The decision has been taken on the recommendation of a committee as well as experts in the field.
The court was hearing a public interest litigation filed by a professor, Dhananjay Kulkarni, challenging the Maharashtra government's decision cancelling Class X exams.
The fake circular also announced that the dates of results for Classes 12 and 10 exams will be 11 and 13 July respectively. However, the results are tentatively expected on July 15.
