State board starts helpline, ‘writer bank’ for board examinations

The Maharashtra State Board of Secondary and Higher Secondary Education (MSBSHSE) has launched a new initiative to create a bank of writers for students from Class 9 to 12 who might need assistance in writing their annual board examinations. Students with various disabilities who appear for the board examination are allowed to opt for writers who are either adult writers or students studying in lower standards, to write the exams. However, the adult writer cannot be a teacher or relative of the candidate.
