UP Board 2019: Several changes made for the Examinations to Prevent Cheating

The administration has tightened its grip on the UP Board examinations that started on February 7. This time, many new changes have been made with the addition of voice recorders CCTV cameras to prevent duplication. Not only will the copy be stopped, but the examiner will also be able to check the copy.

On Wednesday, Varanasi District Magistrate Surendra Singh told in the Rifle Club that during the press conference, there are many instances of page changing in copy after examination. A new system has been implemented to curb this. In which test takers need to write their roll number on every page of copy.
 
At this time, two-two voice recorder cameras have been installed in every room at the examination centres and coding has also been done on the copy. DM said that on receipt of duplication at the centre, from the cell inspector to the zonal, the sector magistrate will be accountable and action will also be taken. If the examination is copied then the cell inspector is bound to go to jail. The responsibility of imposing duplicate copy will be the responsibility of the Centre Chairs and Room Inspectors.
 
In addition to the collective copy, the FIR will be lodged against the magistrate besides the Chairmen of that centre and action will be taken under the Prevention of Corruption Act. There will be 1,09,953 candidates for 149 centres in the examination from February 7, of which 59754 in high school and 50159 candidates in Intermediate.
