Rajasthan & Haryana Board Reduced Syllabus 30%: Recently, the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) had announced a reduction of 30% in the syllabus for students studying in classes 9th to 12th, in order to reduce the burden on students due to the schools being closed because of the lockdown. Now, taking a cue from the CBSE, state governments of Haryana and Rajasthan have also decided to reduce the syllabus for students studying in classes 9th to 12th. The reason given for this reduction in the syllabus is to ensure that the students are not under a lot of pressure as the schools have been closed since March 2020.
