“The members of the public are also advised to sensitize other public around them. The Board will not be responsible for any such fraudulent transactions and/or consequences arising out of it,” said Anurag Tripathi, secretary, CBSE.

The CBSE has also announced the schedule for remaining Class 10 and Class 12 board examinations. The exams will be conducted between 1 and 15 July.
