New Delhi: Registrations for the seventh edition of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s ‘Pariksha Pe Charcha’ have crossed the one-crore mark so far, up from 38.8 lakh last year, according to officials.

This year’s Parikha Pe Charcha (PPC) will be held at the Bharat Mandapam on January 29, where Modi will interact with students, teachers, and parents from India and abroad.

Two students and a teacher from each state and Union Territory and the winners of the Kala Utsav and the Veer Gatha competition may be invited as special guests for the main event.

About 2,050 participants shall be selected on the basis of their questions on the MyGov portal and will be presented with a special Pariksha Pe Charcha kit consisting of Exam Warriors books in Hindi and English, written by the prime minister, along with a certificate.

“PPC has witnessed extensive enthusiasm among students nationwide, eager to participate in events and interact with the PM, whose online registration via an MCQ competition is live on MyGov till January 12, 2024,” a senior Ministry of Education official said.

The first PPC was held in 2018 where 22,000 participants were registered, and last year this number increased to more than 38 lakh.

“This year, the programme will be held on January 29, from 11 am onwards in a town-hall format at Bharat Mandapam, ITPO, Pragati Maidan. Nearly 4,000 participants will be interacting with the PM in the programme,” the official said.

Inspiring this movement is Narendra Modi’s bestselling book ‘Exam Warriors’,” said an MoE official.
