During the hearing, the lawyer appearing for CBSE said that the board does not authenticate anyone’s identity. Also, he said that he only records the information given for the first time.

Therefore, whether it is the first, second or third time or so on, you can make this change based on the information provided. “The court was hearing the petition of the CBSE against the decision given by the court of single bench in March.
