Handsome prizes, including cash is on offer for Class 10 and 12 toppers of Bihar in 2017.

In a first, the BSEB will provide Rs 1-lakh to the class 10 and class 12 toppers in all the three streams along with a laptop and a kindle e-reader.

The second and third toppers will get Rs 75,000 and Rs 50,000 each along with the gadgets, while fourth and fifth rank holders will get Rs 10,000 each and a laptop.

Having had to face a lot of embarrassment due to toppers’ scandal just a year ago and cheating in 2015, the BSEB got the credentials of the 2017 toppers doubly checked this time, while their copies were rechecked by a committee comprising experts of all the subjects from constituent colleges.

Board chairman Anand Kishor said toppers deserved to be applauded for having come through a tightly conducted examination this year. “This is recognition of their hard and honest work, as the entire exercise is aimed at helping meritorious students,” he added.

Intermediate exam, comprising over 13-lakh students, had ended on February 25, while 16 lakh students appeared at the matriculation examination, which ended on March 12.

There will also be rewards for officials of the district administration involved with the examination, police and education department, with the honorarium going up from Rs 10,000 to Rs 20,000 per examination.

At a board meeting, it was also decided to create a new post of examination controller (miscellaneous) in the BSEB in view a large number of other exams it has to conduct around the year. The approval of the education department will soon be obtained for it. Till the approval is obtained, some ad hoc arrangement would be made by the board.

The board has also accepted the long pending demand of its employees and they would now be treated like other government employees. The government has decided to give them the benefit of seventh pay-scale with effect from January 1, 2016, though payment would be made from April 1, 2017.

In another important decision, the board decided to cancel the affiliation of two Hajipur schools – Kendriya Rajeshwari Uchch Bidyalay and Ujjwal Kumar Mishra School – for forging registration of students. All the results have been withheld and explanation sought from the two schools.

“In future, software will be updated to detect such frauds at the very ouset. Aadhar cards will also be used for registration,” said the chairman.
