The central office of Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has set up a new regional office at Noida. Now, students belonging to the region need not go to Allahabad and Dehradun office for their works.
The new regional office in Noida will cater to 16 cities in the area. Now, thousands of students belonging to these cities will find it easy to get their works done at the new Noida office.
An official in CBSE informed that students belonging to these cities need not visit the regional offices in Allahabad and Dehradun to get their works done. He said that the offices in Allahabad and Dehradun had also a big load.
Because the regional offices were only available at Allahabad and Dehradun, it was also difficult to conduct the examinations at these 16 cities. The officials had to do a lot of travelling in order the conduct the examinations.
The cities which are now linked with the new Noida regional office are Agra, Aligarh, Bagpat, Gautam Budh Nagar, Ghaziabad, Hapur, Bulandshahr, Etah, Bareilly, Firozabad, Meerut, Hathras, Kasganj, Mainpuri, Pilibhit, Shahjahanpur and Shamli.
Alok Singh, a parent in Greater Noida, believe that having CBSE office in the city is of great help. He said, “We can now easily reach out to office in case we need some correction in documents.”
Singh, however, said, “I think, it is also a good news for people living out of NCR. Parents or students can directly come to Noida from the 16 cities which are nearby. More importantly, schools in NCR will also find a great relief. Parents or teachers occasionally visit CBSE office but school staffs visit the office more often.”
Amita Saxena, a school coordinator talking with City Spidey said, “This is a good development for Noida. Having an office in relatively less crowded area like Noida will be conducive for the visitors coming from other cities. People had to struggle with huge traffic in order to reach Delhi office. Schools will also find it easier to approach the office for affiliation and other things.”
Now, CBSE has 16 regional offices across the country. The regional offices have been set up at Noida, Bengaluru, Bhopal, Chandigarh, Delhi West and Pune.
