A petition has been filed before the Hon’ble Supreme Court to cancel ICSE, CBSE 12th boards.

The advocate took this step seeing the ongoing criticality because of the ongoing covid-19 pandemic.
The petition has sought direction from the Centre, the Council for the Indian School Certificate Examination, and the Central Board of Secondary Education.
A similar direction has been requested last year by the petitioner in the case of Amit Bathla & Anr. Versus. CBSE & Ors. (2020), similar circumstances caused because of this deadly Covid-19 pandemic in India.
