The state government will be forced to impose stricter measures in Rajasthan if people neglect Covid-19 safety protocols, Gehlot said earlier. He said the second wave of the coronavirus disease and the rising number of cases in the state is a matter of great concern.

The government has also decided to postpone the state education board examinations for classes 10 and 12. The Rajasthan Board of Secondary Education, Ajmer was also directed to promote the students of classes 8, 9 and 10 to the next classes.
