has recently given the assurance that 60,000 students
who failed in class X

The bill proposes an enabling provision which will allow states to detain students in Class V and Class VIII if they fail in the year-end exam
Further, the students will be given a second chance before they are detained
Here's what CM Arvind Kejriwal said:
Previous governments introduced no-detention policy till class 8. It ruined the education system. When students took their first exam in class 9 they failed en-masse. They appeared through open school in class 10 and 60,000 students failed - said Arvind Kejriwal
This announcement was made by the CM Kejriwal while addressing the gathering at Chattarsal Stadium on the occasion of Independence Day.
I assure all 60,000 students who failed in class 10 that they will be readmitted and special classes will be held for them - Kejriwal added.
Last week, a bill to scrap the policy in schools till Class 8 under the Right to Education Act was introduced in Lok Sabha.
