Take foolproof measures for II PU re-examination: DC

Deputy Commissioner Dr K V Trilok Chandra has directed the officials of the Pre-University Education department to ensure foolproof measures for the re-examination of II PU Chemistry scheduled for Tuesday.

Speaking at a meeting with officials of the Pre-University Education department and police here on Monday, the deputy commissioner said that the Chemistry question paper had already leaked twice and there should not be any scope for such incident again.

The re-examination will be held at 24 centres spread over five taluks in Kolar district. The deputy commissioner asked the officials to close down all the xerox shops close the examination centres and impose prohibitory orders in 200 metre radius. He said that no scope should be given for any sort of examination malpractice.

The PU Education Board has prepared six set of question papers and all of them have been despatched to the district treasury. CCTV cameras had been installed in the strongroom of the treasury where the question papers had been kept. Moreover, policemen had been deputed to guard the strongroom, he said.

The Board will finalise one of the six question papers on Tuesday morning and communicate the same to all the centres. Only that particular set of question papers will be transported to the examination centres. The vehicles transporting question papers should be given adequate police security compulsorily. Senior police officials should be extra vigilant on the route through which the vehicle passes.

The responsibility of transporting question paper bundles from treasury to examination centres had been entrusted to district-level officials. These officials should be present at the treasury office at 5.30 in the morning. Police should keep tabs on the movements of these officials.

The question paper bundles will be sealed at the treasury. The seal should be opened only after the question papers reach a particular examination centre and in the presence of the respective examination supervisor. After the completion of the examination, the attendance details of the students should be submitted to the district treasury and answer papers should be transported to the post office. All these tasks will have to be done by the district-level officials only, the DC said.

“Since the question paper has leaked twice, district-level officers have been deputed for the examination duty instead of taluk officials. Chemistry lecturers should not be deputed to any examination centre for any reason. Strict vigil should be maintained on private tuition centres and educational institutions,” the DC said.

Vigilance squads
Vigilance squads headed by respective tahsildars have been formed to keep an eye on examination centres. Any complaint relating to leakage of queston papers could be lodged on 08152-222711, the DC said.

Additional Deputy Commissioner R S Peddappaiah, Additional Superintendent of Police P A Korwara, in-charge Deputy Director of Public Instruction Venkataramaiah, subject inspector Nagendra Prasad and others were present in the meeting.
