It struck me to write something about this so I am writing. Quality of education also depend on the board. If you ask me, which board in India is better for secondary (10th) and for Senior Secondary. Senior Secondary in India is also known as Inter/ intermediate education (in North India and Andhra Pradesh), PUC (Pre University Course)/ PDC (Pre Degree Course) in Kaarnataka, Tamil Nadu and Kerala, HSC (Higher Secondary Certificate) in Maharashtra and 10+2 as well as so on.
As an HR it is very necessary to understand which are the recognized board and other equivalent qualifications. Also, we need to understand it as an individual who wish to upgrade their qualification.

Clarification: Please note that This is a valid university (of the mentioned URL only) and offers Madhyama (HSC/ Diploma Level) courses in Sanskrit language alongwith other degree courses. However Himachal Government does not recongize its qualification as SSC and HSC only. Please do not misunderstand it as a fake institute. Like this institute, Snskrit Vidyapeeth, Delhi and Tirupati also offers same kind of courses. However it is always advisable to go with a secondary education board for secondary and senior secondary education. If there is any other institute in Varanasi with similar name but not with the similar address, that is definitely fake.

Please revert if you have any comments.
Please note that only government can establish boards for secondary and senior secondary education. Only exception is ICSE (http://www.cisce.org/). There is one more board in MP/ CG. I am not recalling. I will post its details soon.
Please note that if you want to do or suggest anybody to do secondary or senior secondary through distance mode, prefer state boards mentioned in recognized list or best NIOS. Do not become victim of a fake qualification.
