According to news agency ANI, around 11,400 students from Gorakhpur may not be able to appear in the examination as the Board did not issue their admit cards.
Joint Director of Education Yogendra Nath Singh informed that discrepancies found in the qualifying documents submitted by students was the reason for stalling the issuance of their admit cards.
The official showed the documents to ANI wherein it was found that a serial number of mark sheets of many students were the same, or in other cases, the passing year was mentioned 2006 but the mark sheets issued were dated 2016, indicating the documents were forged.
“In the last two to four days, around 500-550 students out of the 11,400 have submitted their qualifying documents and their admit cards have been issued. The rest are still pending,” Nath said.
