The Gautam Budh Nagar administration has formed five flying squads and divided the district’s 51 examination centres into 25 sectors to closely monitor class 12 examinations of the Uttar Pradesh board. The examinations will be held from March 16 to April 21.

The flying squads will conduct surprise inspections at the centres and strict action will be taken against anyone caught cheating or engaging in malpractices in the examinations. All the centres have also been equipped with CCTV cameras, according to the district administration.

“The examination will be held in 51 centres across the district. These centres are divided into 25 sectors. Five flying squads have been formed to monitor these examinations to prevent malpractices. Adequate police personnel will also be stationed at every centre,” said district magistrate NP Singh.

The district administration has invoked prohibitory orders under Section 144 of the Criminal procedure code (CrPC) and restricted the use of mobile phones and photocopy machines within 200 metres of examination centres. Any kind of assembly of people or demonstration will not be allowed around centres.

“We are leaving no stone unturned for smooth conduct of examinations. Strict directions have been issued to all district officials in this regard,” Singh said, assuring that there will be no inconvenience to students appearing for the examinations.
