NHRC seeks report from Tamil Nadu, CBSE

The commission said the CBSE authorities have to take effective measures to chalk out a plan by inviting suggestions from experts and develop a more effective procedure for the security check at the exam centres.

The National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) has asked the Tamil Nadu government and CBSE to submit a detailed report on the alleged harassment and inconvenience caused to NEET aspirants in the name of security checks in the state and other parts of the country.

The NHRC has issued notices to the chairperson, Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) and the chief secretary, government of Tamil Nadu, calling for detailed reports in the matter within six weeks.

“Cutting the sleeves of shirts and tearing the pants of aspirants to remove buttons etc. are unethical acts done by the staff deployed at the exam centres. This amounts to violation of the right to dignity of the aspirants,” the commission said.

The commission has further observed that there is a need for the authorities to rethink and adopt certain mechanism with the help of gadgets and equipment to ensure security checks at exam centres in a dignified manner so that time wastage and inconvenience during manual frisking of aspirants could be reduced.

It also said the CBSE authorities have to take effective measures to chalk out a plan by inviting suggestions from experts and develop a more effective procedure for security check at exam centres.

The notice, quoting media reports, said that girl aspirants were not allowed to wear saree and they had to remove all their ornaments, including nose pin, earrings, bangles and sacred threads.
