Bhubaneswar: Odisha School and Mass Education Minister Samir Ranjan Dash said that the syllabus for classes IX and X will be truncated by 30 per cent in view of the COVID-19 crisis in the state and beyond.
“Online classes are currently underway in the state due to the COVID-19 situation. However, it is not possible on the part of each and every student to avail online education. Hence, we have decided to reduce the syllabus,” Dash said.
