Meeting held for smooth conduct of HSLC and HS exams

Hailakandi, Feb 8: The Hailakandi district administration is pulling out all stops to ensure smooth and hassle-free conduct of the HSLC/AHM and Higher Secondary examitions beginning this month. A meeting was convened here on Wednesday by Deputy Commissioner Moloy Bora to discuss the plan of action for smooth holding of the examitions in 11 centres across the district, stated a press release.

Bora asked the officials concerned to install CCTVs in all the centres and the police administration to take over all the centres to prevent any untoward incident. The DC asked the police administration to deploy adequate personnel for protection of the strong room where answer scripts and examition papers will be stored.

The Deputy Commissioner instructed the Education officials to strictly adhere to the SEBA guidelines for smooth conduct of the examitions beginning February 17. He asked the officials to ensure no mobile handsets or electronic gadgets are carried inside the centres and also to make provision – in case someone carries it – under safe custody of the Principals or head teachers. Bora said the administration would keep a hawk’s eye vigil during the examition days and stringent action would be taken against anyone indulging in unfair practices in the examition halls. “No leniency will be shown against anyone resorting to unfair practices during the exams. Whoever is caught indulging in unfair means will be taken to task,” he added.
