COMPLAINTS AGAINST mismanagement in evaluation work of the UP Board exams’ answer sheets clearly hint that ongoing norms need review to consider the latest requirements.

The UP Board authorities issue directives for making necessary arrangement for necessary power supply, safe drinking water, proper furniture and other important amenities, but in most cases these thing are not properly arranged and create discomfort for evaluators.

Most of the centres also did not have standby power supply as no money was provided for the same by the Board.

The Board authorities issued directives that proper security arrangement should be made at evaluation centres, so the unauthorised entry could be checked. But most of the centres do not get support from local police, even after repeated requests.

About two truckloads of answer sheets could not be dispatched from the district collecting centre at the Government Inter College till late evening on Saturday, as the transport agency concerned was demanding advance money and also demanding higher rate per kilometre, than fixed at the rate of Rs 10.30 per kilometre by the UP Board.

Talking to the Hindustan Times, additional secretary, Madhyamik Education, Ramprakash put the ball in the court of the district controller and said that sufficient funds had been released to the district education authority to meet the requirement of evolution work.

When asked about standby power supply, Ramprakash said that power shortage was being faced all over the state and, therefore, examiners had to bear with the same. He said evaluation centres had been allotted enough fund to meet necessary requirements, including sitting arrangements.

Talking to the HT, district inspector of schools SP Diwedi said proper funding was a problem and maximum amount of funds was released by the board authorities after submitting the bills of expenditure. Asked about delay in dispatch of answer sheets from the district collecting centre, Diwedi put the ball in deputy controller and principal of GIC Tilak Singh Rajput’s court by saying that proper transport was not contracted for the job, who could accept its payment after 15 days to one month (the time needed to procure the payment from the Board authorities).
