TUESDAY MARKED the biggest haul so far in the ongoing UP Board examinations in the State capital. Three examination centres were blacklisted, examination of morning shift at one centre was recommended for cancellation while FIR was lodged against a student, principal and an invigilator. Besides, 15 invigilators and a principal were relieved from examination duty for slackness in duty while over two dozens students were held while copying.

For the first time, officials of the district administration and Education department, carried out an extensive raid against the copying mafia. BSA Rajendra Singh blacklisted Rampal Trivedi Inter College, Gosaiganj, where mass copying was on during the morning shift of the examination. He recommended cancellation of the paper at that centre and relieved four invigilators from duty. One dozen copycats were also held from this centre.

The moment his squad reached the centre, examinees started throwing away chits which they were carrying with them. It was obvious that copying was going on in full swing at the center. Singh did not hesitate in recommending cancellation of paper there. On similar grounds yet another centre Florence Nightangle at Sitapur Road, was blacklisted.

Sources said that a fake examinee was held at Florence Nightangle. The name written in his admit card did not match with the one in his driving licence. A case was registered against the principal of the college while it was also recommended to cancel the recognition of this school. St Lawrence School was third school to be blacklisted, said DIOS Vikas Srivastava.

The difference in the name of the examinee at Florence Nightangle highlighted the fact that large number of fake examinee are taking the Board examinations. This newspapers has been writing for quite some time about fake examinees taking the Board examination.

Meanwhile, a number of invigilators were removed from various centres. It included three at Bal Vidya Niketan, two at Ram Krishna Academy, two at Swatantra College.

Sources said the credit for today’s action went to the district administration that had mounted pressure on the Education department to crack the whip.
Video film of exam

IT WAS on the initiative of the district administration that videography of the Board examination was carried out at five centres on Monday. In the days to come more schools will be covered. The decision to use video camera was taken after large-scale mass copying was reported from various centres. “We intend to cover at least 25 schools during the examination,” said NP Singh, ADM (E) while talking to this newspaper.
