The Commission has further observed that such instances would adversely affect the credibility of the institutions in which the students have absolute faith. Students have been undergoing trauma..,” NHRC said in a statement.

It also asked the HRD ministry to inform it about “the steps taken regarding counselling of aggrieved students, and how it is ensuring that the Board examination process would remain trustworthy and foolproof in the future”. ENS
