Even though several national level examinations have so far been conducted in English and Hindi, for the first time this year, due to the state government's pursuit, the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) has made available the option of Marathi in the examination for the post of 'Attendance Assistant'.

In recent developments, the RBI has approved the recruitment process for 841 attendance posts, out of which 202 posts will be recruited in the Mumbai division and 55 in the Nagpur division.

In the past, the candidates had demanded to take the central level examination in Marathi. Taking note of this demand, the Marathi department of the state government had requested to conduct the examination in Marathi.

According to sources, the examination for the post of attendance assistant will be held online. Moreover, this examination will be of 120 marks and the examinees will get 90 minutes. Meanwhile, the language proficiency test will be held on April 9 and 10 at 173 examination centres across the country.

Moreover, the exam will be conducted in 16 other languages including Marathi. In addition, the examination will be held at Nagpur, Amravati and Chandrapur centres in the Nagpur division. Also, in the Mumbai division, examinations will be held at Mumbai, Navi Mumbai, Thane, Aurangabad, Dhule, Jalgaon, Kolhapur, Latur, Nanded, Nashik, Pune, Ratnagiri and Satara centres.

On the other hand, students in their first, second and third year from the undergraduate health sciences courses are urging for a postponement of examinations. This comes amidst the final-year medical examinations commencing earlier this week. In view of the spike with regards to cases of coronavirus, several parents have raised concerns over the conduct of physical examinations. However, the Maharashtra University of Health Sciences is yet to make a decision.

Moreover, around 40,000 students across the state are enrolled in the lower classes of undergraduate courses. Meanwhile, there was over 95 per cent attendance in the final-year exams.
