In its weekly Cabinet meeting convened for its ministers at the Mantralaya today, the State Government took the decision to spare students across the State the ultimate torture during study hours: load shedding in the night hours for a little over a month’s time.

This decision will indeed prove to be a boon for the millions of students appearing for their Board exams across the State of Maharashtra. Class 12 exams commence tomorrow, February 21 and end in the last week of March 2013, while SSC exams start on March 2, 2013 and end on March 25.

As per the Government’s decision, there will be no load shedding in the night hours till March 31, 2013, keeping the Board exams in mind. Regular load shedding schedules will be followed across Maharashtra after this date.

Additionally, all the ministers of the State Cabinet donated a month’s wages towards the drought relief efforts in the State.
