all the areas which was named as the Board of High School and Intermediate Education, RajputanaThis included Ajmer, Merwara, Central India and Gwalior.The Board
witnessed rapid growth and expansion at the level of Secondary education resulting in improved quality and standard of education in institutions.But with the
advent of State Universities and State Boards in various parts of the country the jurisdiction of the Board was confined only to Ajmer, Bhopal and Vindhya

and the Board was given its present name-Central Board Of Secondary Education (CBSE).
