Feb 25 deadline for centres to install CCTV for +2 exam | Bhubaneswar News timesofindia.indiatimes.com


Bhubaneswar: The Council of Higher Secondary Education (CHSE) has issued an ultimatum (February 25) to all examination centres to install CCTV cameras for higher secondary examination. The higher secondary schools or junior colleges, which will fail to install CVTVs by the deadline, will not be allowed to conduct the annual Plus Two exam, an official source said. The exam will begin from March 7.
“All 1,142 exam centres have been asked to install CCTV cameras to ensure free and fair exam. But it came to our notice that many college authorities have not yet installed the cameras. We will tag the centres without CCTVs with nearby colleges having such surveillance system. By February 25, the colleges have to inform whether they have completed the process or not,” said CHSE controller of examinations Bijay Kumar Sahu.
Despite several reminders, some junior colleges in the state did install CCTVs. The CHSE decided to put all examination centres under CCTV surveillance to ensure free and fair Plus Two exam in 2019.
Meanwhile, the CHSE has appointed centre superintendents for exam centres. The headmasters of higher secondary schools, which have become exam centres, will be the centre superintendents. If relatives of the principals are engaged in the exam duty, the latter would hand over the charge to senior teaching staff. Besides, a deputy superintendent will also be engaged in examination duty, Sahu said.
To ensure security of question papers, the CHSE has set up examination management hubs (EMHs) across the state. Question papers will be kept in strong rooms in these EMHs with 24×7 security arrangement. Question papers will be sent to the EMHs this week for first-phase exam.
“The district administrations will declare these strong rooms as temporary treasury and ensure security. These strong rooms will operate till the answer sheets of the region reach CHSE office,” he added.
The process of handing over of question papers to hub supervisers must be recorded on the CCTV. Besides, a police van will pilot when question papers will be transferred from the EMHs to the examination centres, an official said.
