The Haryana government conducted an examination on July 24, 2009 for the recruitment of junior basic trained (JBT) teachers. "Biometric finger impressions of all candidates were collected before the examination. Following the examination, 8,514 teachers were given appointment letters," INLD state president Ashok Arora told the media outside Raj Bhawan here.

The INLD claimed that when the forensic laboratories tried to match the fingerprints of the selected candidates with the biometric data, it was found that hundreds of biometric impressions didn't match. "Hundreds of candidates whose fingerprints didn't match were given appointment letters," the INLD memorandum said.

The party demanded an independent investigation into the issue and biometric data should be sent to a laboratory outside the state for analysis. "They investigation of the alleged scam should be done under the supervision of a serving judge," the party added.
