The Commissioner Hyderabad Muhammad Sohail Rajput has emphasized the need of curbing the cancer of copying and use of unfair means in the examinations. He also called upon all stakeholders to come forward and wage war for saving the future of new generation of the country.
The Commissioner emphasised this while presiding over a meeting here at his office on Tuesday which reviewed the arrangements of the conduct of Higher Secondary School Certificate Part-I and Part-II Annual Examinations 2017 to be started from April 25, 2017 under the management of Board of Intermediate and Secondary Education (BISE) Hyderabad.
Attended by the DIG Hyderabad Khadim Hussain Rind, Additional Commissioner-I Syed Sajjad Haider, Additional Commissioner-II Ahsan Ahmed Siddiqui, Chairman BISE Hyderabad Dr. Muhammad Memon, Deputy Commissioners of all districts of Hyderabad Division, Controller of Examinations and other directors of BISE, the meeting reviewed at length the facilities, arranged at the examination centres to facilitate the candidates with provision of congenial atmosphere during sizzling summer season.
The Commissioner asked the officers concerned to ensure the availability of cold and safe drinking water, sufficient electricity system with availability of ceiling fans and other required facilities so that the candidates could appear in the examinations without facing any inconvenience. He also asked the management of HESCO to avoid load shedding during the timing of examinations.
He directed the officers of BISE Hyderabad to increase the numbers of examination centres with deployment of required staff. The staff concerned should also ensure proper body check of the candidates in order to discourage them to carry the unauthorised things which could help them in copying or use of unfair means while solving the papers.
The Commissioner also directed to ensure strict implementation of Section 144 Cr.P.C. and closure of the shops of photocopier machines during the examination hours and prohibition of the entry of unauthorised persons in the premises of examination centres.
The invigilators and externals should also strictly discourage the copying and use of unfair means in the examinations and immediately inform to Police if they found involvement of any candidate in this menace so that legal action could be initiated against such candidates, he added.
The DIG Hyderabad Khadim Hussain Rind assured the meeting that despite the fact that the Police have been engaged in providing protection to staff of house and population census, strict security will be provided at all examination centres.
The Commissioner also directed the Deputy Commissioners to form vigilance committees comprising Assistant Commissioners, Mukhtiarkars and notables of the areas which could conduct surprise raids at the examination centres and take strict action against copying and use of unfair means in the examinations.—APP
