In an embarrassing incident the Bihar Education department prepared a question paper in which it mentions that Kashmir is a different country.
A question paper prepared by the state board for class VII students across all government schools asked them to name what the people of five countries - China, Nepal, England, Kashmir and India -are called.
They are being conducted under the Centre's Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan, which is overseen in the state by the Bihar Education Project Council (BEPC), a wing of the state education department.
A student of Vaishali district pointed out the error and asked about the same. The department has admitted that it was an embarrassing incident and said that it was due to printing error.
