New Delhi, Aug 21 (IBNS): The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) on Friday apologised to Union Education Minister Smriti Irani for misspelling in a letter sent on her behalf to different schools.
The letter was brought to public notice on social media by a teacher.

The words "minister" and "sansadhan (resources)" were spelt incorrectly in the letter that was sent by the CBSE in the name of Irani to schoolteachers across the country, hailing them on the performance of their students.

The mistakes were pointed out and derided by a teacher from Chhattisgarh on Facebook.

In response to the post, which had gained immense popularity, Smriti Irani asked CBSE for an explanation.

"Inconvenience caused due to the errors is deeply regretted," Joseph Emmanuel, the Secretary of the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE), wrote in a letter to the minister.
