AHSEC secretary first victim of examition stricture
By our Staff Reporter
GUWAHATI, Nov 30: The State Education Department is in full gear not to leave any stone unturned to make the forthcoming High School Leaving Certificate (HSLC) and HS examitions totally error free. A top Assam Higher Secondary Education Council (AHSEC) officer is the first victim of the stricture that has been adopted by the department.
So much so that efforts are on in the department to make geo-satellite monitoring of 10 to 15 examition centres a reality, let alone installation of CCTVs in examition centres.
Leakage of examition papers and other anomalies are in record of marring the HSLC and HS examitions in the State in the past. Apart from pushing students towards uncertainty, such incidents earn bed me to the Department.
That the department has got serious and is not just horsing around is quite glaring when it has asked all headmasters/headmistresses of schools and principals of colleges and higher secondary schools to stay away from examition affairs if their wards are going to take HSLC and HS examitions this year. One of the victims of this stricture is none other than AHSEC Secretary Sonmoni Das. He has been transferred with immediate effect for not letting the department know that his son is going to take HS examition this year.
State Education Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma had a meeting with teachers at Srimanta Sankardeva Kalakshetra today. The minister did some straight talks with the teachers and wanted to know if any of their wards are going to take HSLC or HS examitions this year. “If any of your wards are going to take the HS or HSLC examitions this year, you should better inform the department of it right now, and in writing,” the minister said, and added: “We’re making all efforts to declare examition results after 60 days of holding examitions.”
