In a bid to hold copying free high school and intermediate examinations in Uttar Pradesh, starting March four next, the government on Monday ordered videography in sensitive examination centres and said sector magistrates will be held accountable for any irregularities.

Announcing this at a press conference in Lucknow, State Chief Secretary R Ramani said that ‘Anti-Copying Act’ would be strictly implemented during the High School and Intermediate examinations slated between March 4 and April 10 next.

“The government has directed all divisional commissioners to go for videography at sensitive examination centres so that the officials get the first hand report on the activities of the examinees and mobile phones have been banned inside the centres,” he said.
Ramani said that for the first time sector magistrates have been made responsible for any irregularities in their region while a 24-hour control room would be set up in each district to monitor the over one-month long examinations.

Talking about the punishment to the culprits caught using or abetting unfair means during the examination, he said action would be taken against the examinees or others under the relevant provisions of the Anti-Copying Act, 1998.

Over 27.96 lakh and 16.42 lakh examinees would appear in the High School and Intermediate examinations respectively. A total of 7,833 examination centres have been made for conducting both the exams.
