"Dates for fresh examinations and the other details shall be hosted on the CBSE website within a week".

On March 15, the Delhi government had said it had received complaints of the Class 12 accountancy paper leaked. Moreover, there were reports of the economics paper also being leaked on the same night.

Reports state that many students claimed that nearly all the papers had been leaked a day before the examinations and demanded that if a reexamination is to be held, it should be held for all the subjects.

Javadekar said he was "saddened" by the leaks and was confident that the police would nab the culprits. "Responsibility shud be fixed n strict action shud be taken against those responsible".

Dholakia urged that people who are involved in the leak should be severely punished.
