The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) issued a circular today informing about the re-examination and said dates and other details for it would be posted on the board's website.

According to sources, PM Narendra Modi spoke to HRD minister Prakash Javadekar and conveyed his unhappiness at the paper leak issue.
PM has asked for strict action, the sources said.

The board has taken cognizance of certain happenings in the conduct of certain examinations as are being reported. With the view to uphold the sanctity of the Board Examinations and in the interest of the fairness to the students, the Board has decided to re-conduct the examinations. Dates for fresh examinations and the other details shall be hosted on the CBSE website within a week, a CBSE notice said.

HRD minister Prakash Javadekar assured there would be no further leaks of paper in the ongoing examinations. The minister said "CBSE will put in place stronger mechanism to ensure no further paper leak happens." He said "The people or gang responsible for this would be brought to book," and added "The leak has happned from Delhi school."
Meanwhile some teachers, parents and students are planning to move the Delhi High Court seeking re-exam and an independent probe on the leaks. The parents and students claim that even the class X Social studies and class XII biology exam were also leaked among others.
