The Karnataka High Court has permitted the state government to conduct board exams for classes 5, 8, and 9. A division bench of the high court granted an interim stay to the order passed by the single-member bench on Wednesday. A single-member bench of the HC quashed the government’s order to conduct the examination. An interim stay was granted by the division bench on Thursday.

The state government had issued an order to conduct the board examination for the 5th, 8th, and 9th class students of the year 2023-24. Challenging this order of the government, the association of unaided schools approached the court. A single-member bench of the High Court, which had heard the petition, had stayed the government’s order. The government filed its appeal after this order.

The 5th, 8th, and 9th class board exams are slated to begin on March 11. While government schools have not raised any objection, private schools have challenged the government order. Neither the children nor the parents have raised any objection to the government’s order. In its appeal, the government submitted that the examination scheduled to be held on Monday has been hampered by this injunction. Private schools also objected to the government’s appeal. Finally, after hearing the arguments, the court stayed the order of the single-member bench.

During the BJP government, former Education Minister BC Nagesh had implemented a public pattern examination for class 5 and class 8 students. Siddaramaiah government also thought of conducting board exams for 9th and 11th-class students.
