The Uttar Pradesh Board of Madarsa Education is mulling to use intermediate colleges as examination centres instead of Madarsas, officials said on Monday, in what could be a paradigm shift for these religious schools.
A final decision in this regard will be taken in a meeting of the board likely in July, the officials said.
“From the next session, the board is mulling to make government intermediate colleges as examination centres instead of Madarsas. A final decision in this regard will be taken in the meeting of the board likely to be held in July. Some intermediate colleges have been made examination centres on a trial basis,” Qamar Ali, a member of the Madrasa Board and in-charge of the examination control room (set up in Lucknow), told PTI.
