THE DISTRICT Inspector of Schools (DIOS) has made elaborate arrangements to check use of unfair means in the final examinations to be conducted by the UP Board in March 2006.
According to joint education director JP Rai, for the first time identity cards would be issued to teachers on invigilation duty to check entry of unscrupulous persons at examination centres or in examination rooms.
“Besides, different sectors will be created comprising examination centres and each sector will be under the charge of a sector magistrate. Flying squads will also be deputed to ensure free and fair examinations at each centre.
Above all, at least 90 per cent of teacher invigilators will be from other colleges.
Very few teachers of the centre-college will be deputed as invigilators,” he said.
He said due to opening of private colleges, number of examinees of high school and intermediate had gone up by 70,000 this year as compared to the previous year in the whole region which comprised of Kanpur City, Kanpur Dehat Etawa, Farrukhabad, Auraiyya and Kannauj. The total number of high school and intermediate examinees in Kanpur City this year is 1,32,952 while 64,372 examinees are from Kanpur Dehat.
In order to accommodate such a large number of examinees in the twin districts, 245 examination centres have been created in the city, 100 examination centres were created in Kanpur Dehat while in other districts of the region about examination centres have been created.
According to Rai, due to opening of private colleges the number of regular students was on sharp increase and if this trend continued the board would have to end private examinations.
Some other officials of the education department, pleading anonymity, said that private colleges had started an unethical trend by enrolling students for daylong coaching.
These students never attended regular classes, but these colleges managed ‘short cut’ for their success in the examination, which was not good for developing a healthy system of education, he added.
