Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) students will now be allowed to get their name, date of birth and parents' name in mark sheets within five years of announcement of the result.
Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) students from New Delhi will now get more time to make corrections in their mark sheet. As per the new rule, the students will be able to change name, date of birth and parents' name in their mark sheet within five years of the announcement of the board results. So far, the students used to get only one year for corrections made in their mark sheets.
As per the CBSE notification released on November 10, 2017, “The new rule will be applicable to all cases pertaining to Class 10 and 12 after 2015.”
The revised time limit will be applicable to both ongoing cases received by the regional offices and CBSE headquarters as well as the ones pending in different courts. The new rule will be helpful for above 18,000 schools affiliated to CBSE board.
The provision of one-year window was introduced in 2015 when hundreds of students applied for corrections even after years of passing out. Before 2015, there was no time limit for corrections in the mark sheets, which was misused by many students to get a new identity, procure passports and to enjoy other benefits by changing their names and other details.
Candidates applying for corrections in details on the mark sheet need an affidavit and a copy of newspaper advertisement.
