Mumbai: Ahead of the Maharashtra board class 10 and 12 board exams, the Maharashtra government has decided to run “copy-free exams” campaign. As a part of the campaign, photocopy shops lying within the 50 metre radius of the examination centres will be shut down.

The Maharashtra Board’s Class 10 exams will begin on March 2 and of Class 12 on February 21.
