He added that from various sources it had come to the notice of CBSE that schools and parents were facing problems in completing LOC because of the situation created due to the Covid-19 pandemic. This comes after the Delhi govt wrote to the educational board urging to extend the deadline from Oct 15 to Nov 14.
It further said in the letter that due to global pandemic, many parents lost their jobs and their savings were exhausted in meeting their basic needs. Directorate of Education of the Delhi government had said in its letter that it was submitted that certain people and organizations had expressed their desire to offer financial support as a welfare measure and wish to pay the examination fee of some students of some schools as a noble cause. He said that in view of that, CBSE was requested to kindly extend the date of submission of Examination fee upto November 14 in place of October 15.
