On June 8, 2020, the CBIC had rolled out in Bengaluru and Chennai the first phase of "faceless assessment" scheme for imported goods, as it prepared for pan-India roll out by January 1, 2021. "Board has decided to begin the 2nd phase of All India rollout of faceless assessment w.e.f. August 3, 2020, by including Delhi and Mumbai Customs Zones and extending the scope of Faceless Assessment at Chennai and Bangalore Customs Zones," the CBIC said in a letter to Principal Chief Commissioners of Customs and Central Tax.
NEW DELHI: The Central Board of Secondary Education is likely to inform the Supreme Court on Tuesday about its decision on conducting the pending class 10 and 12 board exams, which were postponed due to the Covid-19 pandemic, officials said. The board last week told the court it will "very shortly" take a decision, after a plea by a group of parents sought quashing of the notification for conducting the remaining class 10 and 12 exams from July 1 to 15 and demanded that the students be awarded marks based on an internal assessment or in line with marks allotted for practical exams. A similar request has been made by the Maharashtra, Delhi and Odisha governments to the HRD Ministry.
