A significant number of students have registered for the Pariksha Pe Charcha this year. Union Education Minister Dharmendra Pradhan on tuesday said that over 38 lakh students have registered for the sixth edition of the annual event ‘Pariksha Pe Charcha’ (PPC). This year’s PPC will take place on January 27th at the Talkatora Stadium in New Delhi and will focus on preparing students to face board and competitive exams with confidence.
Addressing a press conference, the Education Minister said, “Total of 38 lakh participants have registered for PPC 2023 and almost 16 lakh students of them are from state board this year. To make the PPC 2023 a national-level event, 102 students from across the country will represent different states in the event. 80 finalists from NCERT’s Kala Utsav will also be present on the occasion.”
Pradhan said that the ministry has received almost 20 lakh questions which are being analysed by NCERT. The Minister said that the participant students will be taken to places of national importance like the Rajghat, Sadaiv Atal, and Prime Minister’s museum to make them acquainted with our rich legacy.
“Students will be a part of the January 26 parade at India Gate, will be engaged in Pareeksha pe Charcha on Jan 27 and will visit the Kartavya path, war memorial, Rajghat, Atal Samadhi Sthal and PMO on Jan 28. They will be our guests for beating the retreat on Jan 29,” he said.
He also spoke about the importance of Pariksha Pe Charcha in helping students beat exam stress, strengthening Pariksha Pe Charcha as a mass movement and the quantum jump in student participation this year. “This unique and popular initiative by Hon’ble PM Narendra Modi has enhanced students’ self-confidence, helped them manage stress and be healthy and fit,” he said.
Pradhan said that Pareeksha pe Charcha has become an institution in itself.
