Uttar Pradesh government has implemented strict measures to ensure that board exams, starting in the state from Thursday, are conducted without any cheating and unfair practices. 

From WhatsApp to social media, activities of unruly elements are being monitored.

“If anyone is found responsible for leaking question papers, parts of question papers, or their solutions for a subject before the exam, strict action will be taken against them under the relevant laws. 

Sensitive and highly sensitive examination centres and districts have been identified by the Secondary Education Council and special monitoring arrangements have been made through STF and local notification units to prevent any untoward incident,” UP government officials said.

In addition, to control the possibility of cheating, question papers will be opened under the surveillance of CCTV cameras, and armed forces and live CCTV cameras have been arranged for 24-hour monitoring at collection centres and strong rooms. The morning inspection of the strong room will be conducted by a special team.
