The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has requested all of its affiliated schools to ensure maximum participation of students, teachers, guardians/parents and staff in the Pariksha Pe Charcha 2022 on April 1.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi will interact with students, teachers and parents on April 1 as part of Pariksha Pe Charcha 2022. 

The programme is expected to focus on some of the key questions on examination.

"Prime Minister of India will interact with approximately 1000 students from Class 9 upwards on April 1, 2022 for the Pariksha Pe Charcha 2022 (PPC 2022) at Talkatora Stadium, Delhi," the CBSE wrote to heads of schools affiliated to it.

The school authorities have been asked to take appropriate measures to ensure arrangement of TV and a facility for TV reception (including making alternate arrangements for continuous supply of electricity) so that all students, teachers and staff of the school can view/hear the live address of the Prime Minister. 

"Apart from TV broadcast, the viewing facility may also be arranged through Edusat and also on internet access devices (computer/laptops/mobiles, etc.)," the board said, adding that the web link will be shared shortly. 

The board has asked the school heads to arrange radio/transistors through which the students may listen to the Prime Minister's interaction for those schools located in remote areas where TV viewing/internet facility may not be feasible.  

"This program would focus on some of the key questions on examination, you are requested to ensure maximum participation of students, teachers, Guardians /Parents and staff at your school. In view of ensuing examination season, this may be given top priority," the board added.
