The Ministry of Human Resource Development said a sub-committee of the Central Advisory Board of Education had recommended a review of the policy of automatic promotion up to Class VIII, and its implementation in a phased manner.

“The committee has also recommended a review of a no-detention policy and its implementation in a phased manner,” the ministry informed the Lok Sabha in response to a parliamentary question.

The advisory board had constituted the sub-committee under the chairmanship of the then Haryana Education Minister Geeta Bukkal to examine the no-detention policy, following criticisms against it. While recommending a review of the no-detention policy, the sub-committee is understood to have stated that automatic promotions have adversely affected the performance of children.

During an interaction with school students last week, HRD Minister Smriti Irani said the advisory board would look into suggestions from students of reverting to the earlier system of promotions.
