HRD Minister's Challenge for Hackathon Candidates will Surprise You!
New Delhi: The Union Minister for Human Resource Development Prakash Javadekar appealed the candidates of Hackathon to solve the issue of CBSE Question paper leakage. It was an appeal he put before the candidates during the grand finale of Smart India Hackathon 2018 (Software Edition).
This appeal was raised on the background of the CBSE question papers found leaked on WhatsApp. The minister launched the two day event being held at 28 nodal centres across the country simultaneously.
He said that this problem is not a subject of this year's Smart India Hackathon, but asked students to accept this challenge and work on the solution of full proof examination after this Smart India Hackathon-2018.
Mr Javadekar also said that 27 innovations made by students during the last year Smart India Hackathon are in the final stage and ready for deployment. He said that this year, with the participation of more students and more teams, 100 more innovations will come out this year.
