CBSE : Sensitization regarding Tackling Tobacco Epidemic

Central Board of Secondary Education

Sensitization regarding Tackling Tobacco Epidemic

In continuation to our circular No. 09/2006 dated 31.5.2006; Cir. No. 29/2007 dated 20.6.2007; Cir. No. 27/2008 dated 24.06.2008; Cir. No. 33/2008 dated 01.09.2008; Cir. No. 49/2008 dated 6.11.2008; Cir. No. 18/2009 dated 19.01.2009; Cir.No.04/2012 dated 24.04.2012 and Cir. No. 13/2014 dated 08.05.2014) and with reference to Health Manuals (4 volumes), Life Skills Manuals and Environment Education Manuals and Adolescent Education Programme Manuals, the Board wishes to highlight the fact that tobacco consumption remains a serious health issue in our society and among all the steps that could be taken to prevent the consumption of tobacco the most productive is perhaps to prevent young persons from acquiring the habit of consumption of tobacco.

There are powerful social, environmental, advertising, and marketing factors responsible for initiating and sustaining tobacco use among youth. Nevertheless, the Board still considers that this epidemic can be prevented by a sustained multi-pronged campaign involving community at large. In this context; the role of schools affiliated to CBSE assumes paramount significance. They need to ensure that there continues to be the widest possible exposure to harmful effects of tobacco and anti-tobacco campaigns in schools by involving students in myriad activities under Health  and Wellness Club, Eco Clubs and various co-curricular activities as part of their annual calendar.

Reg: Modalities and schedule of fee in respect of the processes of Verification of  Marks, Obtaining Photocopy of the Evaluated Answer Book(s) and Revaluation for the Senior School Certificate(Class XII) Examination, 2014

It is for the information of all the stakeholders that w.e.f. 2014 examination Board has decided to introduce  the provision of “Revaluation” at the Senior Secondary level(Class XII) in addition to the provisions of  Verification of Marks and Obtaining of photocopy of evaluated answer book(s) which are already in  existence. These processes have been interlinked viz. candidates applying for verification of marks will  only be eligible to apply for obtaining photocopy of evaluated answer book and those obtaining  photocopy of answer book will only be eligible to apply for revaluation, meaning thereby that no  candidate will be permitted to make a request for providing of photocopy(ies)without following the  procedure of verification of marks and in the same way no candidate would have a right to challenge the  answer(s) without verification of marks and getting photocopy of the evaluated answer book. Therefore, the  candidates are requested to take note of this information and be careful while submitting application(s)  accordingly.

The modalities are as under:

1. Verification of marks
