Anxious students, teachers and principals alike decided to share the letter in WhatsApp groups in a bid to confirm the news.
However, the CBSE authorities were quick to declare that the letter, which had a forged signature of CBSE director (academics) Joseph Emmanuel, was fake. A senior CBSE official said that the results of class 12 and 10 are in the final stage of preparation and are expected to be out this week.
“CBSE never declares the date of announcing the results in advance. But we would like to share that the process of preparing the results of both the classes is in the final stages and the CBSE will be declaring the results very soon”, said regional officer (RO), CBSE, Prayagraj, Lalit K Kapil, in a TOI report.
