Visually-impaired students struggle to find scribes to write exams

With only a few days left for the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) examinations to begin, hundreds of visually-impaired students in the Capital are struggling to find scribes to write papers on their behalf.
Last year, when 31-year-old, Ankul Tomar had decided to continue his studies after a gap of 18 years, he did not even think that finding a scribe would be a problem. “I had to drop out after class IX in 1999 due to financial conditions. But, now I am pursuing my studies through distance education and enrolled in class X under the CBSE,” he said.
