Hyderabad: The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has directed all affiliated schools to download registration cards of students of both classes IX and XI from February.
From 17 February CBSE schools will provide a print out of registration cards to students of classes IX and XI. The student and his/her parents then have to sign the registration card after verifying the details given there. The registration card must be returned to the school on February 24 for the school principal's signature.
On March 6 the registration card will be handed over to the students with a direction to get it laminated for safekeeping. In case of mistakes or incorrect data in the registration card, the school will send all such requests to the CBSE regional office with supporting documents on March 23.
Updated registration card with correct details will be provided to the students concerned by April. The board will open Digilockers for all students of classes IX and XI by May 15. The schools will be informed about the login IDs of the Digilockers. Students will receive their registration cards in their respective Digilockers. This entire process will help the board issue admit cards and marksheets with correct details.
The board has also said that it will not make any corrections once the registration card is issued as students and parents have given their undertaking that the data is correct to the best of their knowledge and belief and no change is required.
The registration of students of classes IX and XI is done with the purpose to plan for next year's board examination, to confirm the subjects offered and combinations of subjects opted by the students, to provide data to the student concerned through their registration cards. The board has decided to provide registration cards for session 2019-2020 in the Digilockers to make system more responsive, quick, and transparent.
