As reported by Patrika, Dr. Jagbir Singh, the Chairman of Haryana Board of School Education, said that the move will help minimize enrollment of fake students with the board.
Till now, the board was conducting the enrollment process only for class 9 and class 12 students. With the enrollment process at class 8 too, it will help the board to filter out students who pass class 8 illegally from other boards and then enroll themselves in class 9 in Haryana.
The board is also contemplating to conduct exam for class 8th through the board itself and is waiting for approval from the government.
