Hyderabad: In order to curtail malpractices in the Intermediate Public Examinations (IPE), the Andhra Pradesh government has decided to install Closed Circuit Television (CCTV) cameras in the 18 problematic centres on a pilot project basis.
Addressing the media at the Andhra Pradesh Board of Intermediate Education (AP BIE), BIE secretary Ramasankar Naik said the CCTV cameras would be set up in all 127 problematic centres in the State in a phased manner.
He further said that 14 CCTV cameras had been installed in the spot valuation centres across the 13 districts in the State.
“The Global Positioning System (GPS) will help prevent text messages, multimedia messages and any sort of unlawful bulk messages to avoid question paper leakage,” Naik said. The secretary warned of stringent action against officers and managements who resorted to any kind of malpractice, adding that they would be booked under Section 25 of the AP Public Act, 1977.
Naik said as many as 9,91,006 candidates would appear for both Intermediate first and second year examinations and 1,412 centres had been arranged for smooth conduct of examinations. Of the total centres, 54 were self centres, he added.
The examinations are scheduled from March 11 and will conclude on March 25. Students can also download their hall-tickets from http://bieap.cgg.gov.in/.
Candidates should carefully verify names, medium, centres and subjects indicated in their hall tickets. If any discrepancy was noticed it should be rectified through the principal of the college, he said.
He further said that students could cross check their Aadhaar numbers if found wrongly printed. “Aadhaar numbers are also printed on the hall tickets. Candidates are advised to verify the correctness of their Aadhaar number,” he said.
Naik urged the students to be present at the examination centres 30 minutes before the examination. He made it clear that the students who came after 9 am would not be entertained.
Naik said that RJDEs and District Vocational Educational Officers were appointed as observers, who in turn would be observed by BIE head office.
