Kokborok UPSC NOTE

 Why in news

  • Faced with widespread protests by students belonging to the indigenous communities, tribal forums and political parties, the Tripura Board of Secondary Education has given in and allowed them to write exam papers in the Roman alphabet of the Kokborok language.

  • TBSE president Dhananjay Gon Choudhury on Wednesday announced that he would soon issue an instruction for exam centre supervisors to accept both Roman and Bangla scripts for writing Kokborok.

  • The decision came after Mr. Choudhury initially ordered that only the Bangla script be allowed for Kokborok exam papers and even threatened exam centre supervisors with police complaints if they accepted any other script in the upcoming school-leaving and higher secondary exams this year.
