up school syllabus: Ganga conservation to be part of UP syllabus

Published

on

LUCKNOW: Students of the Uttar Pradesh Secondary Education Board (UPSEB) will now study the Ganga conservation subject at the high school and intermediate level.

This has been included as a subject at the initiative of the Namami Gange Department and Uttar Pradesh will be the first state to do so.

According the government spokesman, a proposal to include Ganga conservation and prevention of water pollution in the curriculum has been prepared and the UPSEB has sent it to a committee of Hindi experts for consideration.

Once the committee approves the proposal, the subject will be included in the syllabus.

Students will learn ways to save the holy water of the Ganga from getting polluted and the journey of the Ganga from the Himalayas to the Bay of Bengal.

The idea is to link the Ganga cleanliness campaign with the youth and spread Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s concept of ‘Nirmal and Aviral Ganga’ among children.

The initiative, said officials, will not only enhance the knowledge of children, but will also give a new momentum to the Ganga cleanliness.

The Namami Gange and the state government’s rural water supply department have directed the secondary education department to implement new courses and activities related to the Ganga pollution in schools and also make it compulsory for students to take part in Ganga cleanliness programme.

All India Bar Exam-XV: Over 1.20 lakh advocates to appear for the exam at 154 centers

Published

NEW DELHI: The Bar Council of India (BCI) has said that approximately 1,20,000 advocates are going to appear for the All India Bar Exam (AIBE)-XV (15) which is scheduled to be held on January 24 at 154 centres in 52 cities of the country.

To pursue a career as a lawyer or advocate, clearing the AIBE is a prerequisite. AIBE is a national-level examination conducted by the BCI to assess whether provisionally enrolled advocates or fresh law graduates have the aptitude to practice law.

During the last exam, around 9 centres had been cancelled owing to reports of usage of unfair means. This time, the candidates who had appeared and given the exam on such centres, have been mostly shifted to other centres, said the BCI.

“No fee has been charged from such candidates this time. Though usage of mobile phones, electronic gadgets are not allowed during the exam, however, as an additional measure, signal Jammers shall also be used at approximately 50 centres in order to further ensure that no one in the vicinity is able to use phones or gadgets. It is further made clear that the period from March 24, 2020, to March 31, 2021, had been exempted owing to the pandemic Covid-19 from being counted within the period of two years (with effect from enrolment as an Advocate) for clearing/passing the All India Bar Exam,” BCI said in a statement.

Therefore, candidates who have shown/expressed their inability to appear in this exam within the prescribed period, owing to pandemic related reasons or otherwise can appear in the next exam, which is slated to be held in the month of March/April 2021.

It is to be noted that though a candidate has filed a writ case challenging the All India Bar Exam, however, his prayer for an ad-interim stay on AIBE-XV (scheduled for 24th January 2021) has not been allowed by the Supreme Court.
