Muzaffarpur (Bihar), Mar 25 (ANI): A circular issued by Bihar Education Project (BEP) officials in Muzaffarpur district has made it mandatory for students to mention their caste in answer sheets or else their results would be kept pending.
The circular said it would be of great help in finding out the total percentage of students belonging to a particular caste appearing in annual examinations from Class I to VIII for an 'honest assessment'.
The circular was issued on March 11 by BEP Programme Cordinator-cum-District Education Superintendent Arun Kumar and Primary Informal Education Coordinator Shankar Kumar through letter no. BEP/247.
BEP Director Rajesh Bhushan said that he was not aware of such a circular being issued by the state headquarters and added that he would verify it. (ANI)
