NEW DELHI: Uttar Pradesh government is all set to conduct the Board examination in a fair manner by controlling the copying mafia in the state.
For controlling the copying mafia the govt has roped in Special Task Force which will ensure that the upcoming board examination would be conducted in a free and fair environment in the state.
If a cheating mafia tries to interfere in the conduct of the examination in any district or to influence the examination system in any way, they will be prosecuted under the Gangster Act. NSA will be slapped against those disrupting law and order.
Meanwhile, all district magistrates have been asked to ensure the functionality of CCTV cameras at examination halls. DMs and police personnel have been asked to establish communication with the STF and help identify nakal-mafia, and take action against them.
All examinees should enter the examination centres 15 minutes before the commencement of the exam, after that no student will be allowed to enter the examination hall.
The question papers will be opened before the static magistrate and both, internal and external centre superintendents. The DM and senior superintendent of police will make necessary arrangements for the security of the strong room where the question papers are kept. Strict action will be taken against people spreading fake news on social media.

The examinations will be held at 8,752 centres across 75 districts in Uttar Pradesh. The Class 12 examinations will be held in 14 working days and will end on March 4.
According to the UP Secondary Education Board timetable for the 2023 examinations, the Class 10 examinations will be held in 13 working days and will end on March 3.
For the first time, UP Board examinees will get stitched answer sheets. The move is aimed at preventing the copying mafia from changing answer sheets of meritorious students because in previous years there were complaints of changing copies by removing staples.
Also, answer sheets given to the students will have barcodes and monograms on them.
The initiatives are being taken with the aim to eliminate the scope of manipulation of answer sheets. The Board will also conduct random checks of some answer sheets using the barcodes which will further put a noose around those involved in copying.
Over three crore answer sheets will be required for the UP Board examinations. Model exam questions for Class 10 and Class 12.
