Deputy Chief Minister Dinesh Sharma, who holds the education portfolio, said that the decision had been taken in view of the closure of schools. "The students will be promoted on basis of the performance all year round."
The state government has also postponed the evaluation of answer sheets for the 2020 high school and intermediate examinations till April 2.
The decision came after groups of teachers stayed away from evaluation centres due to the corona scare.
The postponement of evaluation process will now lead to a delay in the announcement of results for high school and intermediate.
