The Mumbai Division of the Maharashtra State Board in a letter to schools said that they could lose the status of being a board exam centre if evaluation work is delayed due to their teachers.
The teachers who fail to complete assessment work on time would be financially penalised.
It was noticed that many teachers failed to submit evaluated answersheets on time.
The Mumbai division of the state board in their letter said, “It has been observed that many teachers are delaying assessment work, some also boycotting the work. In case of such delays, the moderators will have to take the responsibility of submitting corrected answersheets to the board and bear the expense. This expenditure then will have to be adjusted in the allowance given to teachers for paper correction.”
The division further warned “Considering how serious this matter is, as it can delay the state board results, if teachers are not warned now, schools will have to face consequences. The schools stand to lose their code number as a state board centre”.
The board prepares a schedule for the teachers to complete the assessment work in order to declare results on time. Based on the schedule, teachers have to complete the evaluation work and submit the papers to the moderators.
The Class X board exams ended on April 4, while Class XII exams were completed on April 7. The results are usually declared at May-end or in June.
