Meanwhile, the state education board has granted regular students of Class XII the option of appearing for offline examinations, if they are dissatisfied with the results. Exams dates will be announced soon.
As per Class XII board results preparation formula, 50% of the marks scored by students in the Class X final results will be counted, along with 25% each of Class XI and XII internal test results.
However, if any student is dissatisfied with the results, he/she will have to submit results to the state board within 15 days from the date of results announcement. They will be allowed to appear for offline examinations.
Also, the state government, in principle, approved a Rs797 crore multipurpose lift irrigation scheme for the tribal belt in Valsad district, that will benefit talukas such as Dharampur and Kaprada.
Chief Minister Vijay Rupani reiterated his commitment towards eliminating water shortage faced by people belonging to the tribal community living in hilly areas of forest regions and encouraged them to achieve economic prosperity by farming more crops.
He gave permission to a proposed action plan to provide water to villages of Dharampur-Kaprada by lifting water from the Damanganga Reservoir Project and pouring it into the main canal, thereby increasing its discharge.
Under this lift irrigation scheme, a total of 163 km-long pipeline network will help irrigate around 19,000 acre of land in 24 villages of remote tribal areas in Kaprada taluka and approximately 13,450 acre of land in 13 villages of Dharampur taluka.
As per the possible outline of this lift irrigation project, it shall cross three major rivers of Valsad district namely Kolak, Par and Taan rivers.
On these rivers, there are approximately nine large check dams and about seven small check dams on its tributaries, which will be filled with water through the pipeline. With these rivers being revived, over 1,730 acre of land will be able to receive the benefits of irrigation.
