DISTRICT MAGISTRATE RN Tripathi told the principals and centre incharges to see that no unfair means is used during the UP Board examinations. He said if the managers of unaided and other private schools ask the principals to help the students copy in the examination, they could contact him or seek the help of other officials.
Addressing the principals at the Jai Narain Inter College, he said he had given several cell numbers to the centre in-charges so that they could contact the officials whenever needed. He said the names of the in-charge concerned, if need be, would be kept secret. But strict action would be initiated against those who would be found guilty of violating the examination norms.
The centre in-charges were also told about do’s and don’ts to maintain the sanctity of the examination.
Tripathi directed the BSA to prepare I-card for those teachers who would do the invigilation work. “If there is any problem, you must send me their documents and I would sign them,” the district magistrate told the BSA when a teacher wanted to have some clarifications about the I-card.
RP Mishra, president of the Madhyamik Sikshak Sangh criticized the education department in Tripathi’s presence for not adhering to the rules and regulations while preparing the I-cards.
He appealed to the education department to follow the rules when it comes to recognising principals of unaided schools.
Six flying squads have been constituted under DIOS, BSA and other senior officials of the education department. They would visit different centres to supervise the examination.
A meeting of the members of the squad has been convened at DIOS office.
Three control were also set up at Siksha Bhawan.
However, the district magistrate maintained silence on the use of NSA against anybody violating the norms during the examinations.
DIOS Vikas Srivastava expressed satisfaction at the preparation.
The authorities set up 246 centres in the district where one lakh students would take the examination.
