The BJP government has decided to scrap the no-detention policy up to Class VIII in Tripura. The policy would be replaced by annual evaluation in Class V and Class VIII from this academic session.
“The state government has planned to re-introduce the pass-fail system in Tripura this year. This follows the Centre’s decision on the same lines in a bid to ensure education for all under the Right to Education Act,” TOI quoted education minister Ratan Lal Nath as saying.
The state government has also decided students of Class I to IV and Class VI to VIII will be evaluated but won’t have to give any exams.
However, students in Class V and Class VIII will be promoted to the next class if they pass the exam.
The Right to Education Act, 2009 scrapped detention of any student up to Class VIII.
