The press conference was attended by Central Board of Secondary Education chairperson Anita Karwal IAS and Mr. Swarup IAS.
"Our immediate concern of the children who have suffered and this decision is in that context. We will nail the person who did this," Mr Swarup said.
There will be no re-examination for Non-Resident Indians or NRI students. He said since the Class 12 economics paper was leaked across the country, but there will be no fresh exam outside of India because there was no leak.
However, Mr. Swarup said the decision to conduct fresh exams in April won't affect the date of publication of the CBSE results which usually happens in May end.
Asked about rumours that several CBSE question papers were leaked, he said false information was being spread through social media.
The CBSE decision came as students and their parents took to the streets across India to denounce the question paper leak and, in some cases, demand the sacking of the CBSE head Anita Karwal IAS. The leak and re-test has affected lakhs of students and forced their families to postpone or cancel planned holidays.
The CBSE runs 19316 affiliated schools in India and 211 schools in 25 foreign countries.
