With exams of undergraduate classes being conducted at various colleges affiliated to Maharshi Dayanand University (MDU), Rohtak, sale of ‘cheating slips’, popularly known as gutkas, is going on with impunity at photostat shops located in the vicinity of the colleges.

Sources maintain that sets of these ‘cheating slips’ are being sold openly to students for Rs 40 to 60 per set. Each set comprises of readymade exam notes of a given subject in question-answer format in compressed form. Students use these slips as unfair means in exams.

Posing as a decoy customer, this correspondent purchased a set of ‘cheating slips’ for BA (semester 3) history exam slated to be held on Friday from a photostat shop located near Jat College in Rohtak today.

The slip (pic enclosed) comprised of a stapled set of 22 pages bearing printed questions and answers on both sides, covering the entire syllabus of the subject.

On being questioned, MDU Controller of Examinations (CoE) Dr BS Sindhu said they had received complaints in this regard and appropriate action would be taken against use of unfair means in exams.

“I had written to the local Deputy Commissioner and Superintendent of Police, requesting them to take necessary measures even before the commencement of exams. I will take up the matter with the authorities concerned again in view of the prevailing situation,” the CoE maintained.

On being apprised of the matter, Rohtak DSP (Headquarters) Gorakh Pal Rana asserted that prompt and strict action would be taken against the shopkeepers found selling ‘cheating slips’ to students to facilitate the use of unfair means in exams.
