The Maths paper leak was a stinging embarrassment to CBSE, as the Class X board exams were being held after eight years. "The source of the circulation of this information is not known yet", a senior CBSE official had said. Mr Maken's son, Aujaswi, is among the 1.6 million class 10 students who will have to re-appear for the mathematics paper. The CBI had to get involved after aspirants of Staff Selection Commission (SSC) staged protests over exam papers being leaked in the second week of March.

As XII class student has to relocate for further studies many families plan to return back on final exit.

The Ministry and even Prime Minister Narendra Modi have expressed concern over the paper leak and the government has now said they are working on an encryption system to check leaks in the future. According to CBSE spokesperson Rama Sharma, this year all papers that we sent across Delhi, India and overseas had the same set of questions.
