Jharkhand Academic Council (JAC)

Jharkhand Academic Council (JAC)

Jharkhand Academic Council came into existence in 2002 after an independent state called Jharkhand was separated from Bihar in 2000. Considering the poor conditions of the education in this state, the Government of Jharkhand established JAC to conduct examinations for Intermediate, Secondary, Madhyama and Madarsa level. With the establishment of the Jharkhand Academic Council, the Bihar Intermediate Education Council Act, 1992, the Bihar School Examination Board Act, 1952 (adapted as Jharkhand Secondary Examination Board Act, 2000) Bihar Sanskrit Education Board Act, 1981 And Bihar Board of Madrasa Education Board Acts, 1981 were repealed.

Under the dynamic leadership of the State Govt. all the branches of education Secondary, Intermediate Sanskrit (Madhyama) and Madarsa were brought under the single umbrella of Jharkhand Academic Council with the sole intention that all the branches of learning got equitable and unified attention so that they may grow into mighty oaks and no branch gets isolated and languished in cold shade of neglect.
