With Madhyamik and Higher Secondary examinations drawing near, senior officials of the Madhyamik board have given a list of 54 sensitive centres in the state.
A meeting was convened today at Nabanna with the home secretary where the administrator of West Bengal Board of Secondary Education, Mr Kalyanmoy Ganguly gave a list of 54 examination centres in six districts which are vulnerable.
The districts include Malda, Murshidabad, Coochebehar, North and South Dinajpur and
However the West Bengal Board of Higher Secondary Education has failed to provide a list of the sensitive booths yet.
Mr Basudev Banerjee state home secretary said that they have received the list of sensitive examination centres from the Madhyamik Board and that they are looking into the matter.
Few days ago, the state education minister Bratya Basu today said that the state education department has decided to introduce videography in vulnerable examination centres in a bid to prevent cheating during madhyamik and higher secondary examinations.
Mr Basu also did not rule out the possibility of arresting those who will cheat in the examination
centres. The decision was taken after the state witnessed mass cheating in Madhyamik and Higher Secondary examination on earlier occasions.
This year, the Madhyamik examination is scheduled on 24 February and ending on 6 March, while the Higher Secondary examination will start from 12 March and end on 28 March.
