How the program was conceived, implemented
‘Pariksha Pe Charcha’, said to be the ‘brainchild’ of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, was conceived & launched with a vision to allay the anxieties & apprehensions of students during the Board Examinations. During the interaction, not just students but parents as well as teachers interact directly with the Prime Minister over a slew of topics related to examinations and also about the ‘life after school’.
Students as well as parents from the country & abroad share their mental state, exam-related issues clouding their mind while Prime Minister tries to ‘comfort’ them with convincing answers.
The event has been organized successfully for past 6 years, by the Department of School Education and Literacy, Ministry of Education.
Notably, Pariksha Pe Charcha is a part of larger movement – ‘Exam Warriors’ – led by PM Modi, for creating stress-free atmosphere for students appearing in exams.
