'Pariksha pe Charcha', an interaction with the Prime Minister over various aspects of exam, is in its third year. The programme was initially scheduled for January 16 but was postponed to January 20 because of Pongal, Makar Sankranti, Lohri, Onam and other festivals across the country.
This year, the Ministry of Human Resource Development organized a unique contest to select students who would get to meet the Prime Minister Narendra Modi in person and ask their questions. The contest was open only for students in classes 9 to 12.
Students had to select one theme of five listed on the 'MyGov' website and write an essay in 1500 characters. Best answers were to win their writers the opportunity to meet PM Modi.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi will interact with the selected students at the Talkatora stadium in New Delhi. The programme will begin at 11 am and will be broadcasted live on Doordarshan, MHRD YouTube channel, MyGov, and NaMo App.
Educational institutes across the country have created enough buzz about the event with the likes of IIT Kharagpur, Kendriya Vidyalaya Sangathan and NIOS tweeting about the event.
