New Delhi: The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has always been sensitive to the needs of disabled students. The Board, through an official notification, has stated that it is extending several exemptions/concessions to candidates with benchmark disabilities (for Class X & XII Examinations conducted by the CBSE) as defined in The Rights of Persons with Disabilities Act - 2016.

The Board has observed that neither the schools nor the students are fully aware about these exemptions and are also not following correct way of seeking available exemptions during their course of studies and examinations.

Keeping this in mind, the Board has decided to update and compile all exemptions/concessions so that stakeholders are aware about the same.

The changes made will supersede all earlier Circulars. These exemptions/concessions will be applicable for the 2020 examination onwards, stated the notice issued by the Controller of Examinations.
