The Home Ministry granted permission on Saturday for reopening of 3,000 CBSE affiliated schools as assessment centres across India to facilitate the evaluation of answer sheets of CBSE Board exams.

Human Resource Development Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal 'Nishank' said 3,000 CBSE- affiliated schools have been identified as assessment centres across India and special permission will be granted to these schools for the limited purpose of evaluation.
