The Union Ministry of Education advised schools to allow girl students to take restroom breaks during board exams for classes 10 and 12. Free sanitary napkins should be provided at all exam centres to ensure menstrual hygiene doesn't affect academic performance. The advisory applies to all schools, including CBSE, KVS, and NVS. It aims to promote girls' well-being and academic focus by addressing menstrual needs. Educational programs will raise awareness about menstrual health and hygiene, aiming to reduce stigma. The ministry emphasizes treating girl students with dignity, empowering them to confidently participate in exams and fulfil their academic potential.
