The CBSE board allowed calculators to students with Dyscalculia or other such special needs. But such a thing was only possible with a certificate issued by the authority.
Along with sanitizers and masks, students carried their pencil boxes inside the exam hall. The boxes or pouches required to be clear or transparent. Only analog watches were allowed. No smartwatches were allowed to be taken inside the exam hall along with any other electronic gadgets.
