These decisions were taken in a meeting held under the chairmanship of principal secretary, basic and secondary education, Deepak Kumar at a review meeting at the directorate of secondary education. The UP board exams will begin from February 4.

ADG STF Amitabh Yash said that going by the past experiences, there was a possibility that some people may try to create problems. “The district magistrates and the superintendents of police were told to coordinate with the STF to identify those found to be involved in cheating or influencing the examination by conniving with the cheating mafia. Preventive action should be taken against such people,” Kumar said.

Hence, all the district magistrates were told to check the functioning of the CCTV cameras installed in the examination centres. While opening the question paper, the presence of static magistrate, centre administrator and external centre administrator will be mandatory. In case of absence of any of the three, responsibility will be fixed and strict action will be taken.
