Board exam answer sheets transported in Delhi Metro, lawyer writes to CBSE


New Delhi Mar 14: In a violation of security provisions, a school in the capital allegedly transported answer sheets for the CBSE Class XII chemistry examination in the Delhi Metro, without any security, yesterday.

An employee of School, located in Najafgarh, allegedly took the Blue Line with the packed answer sheets. Asked by a commuter about the packet, the employee said he had been sent by the examination superintendent to drop the sheets to the CBSE headquarters in Preet Vihar. The commuter, lawyer Tarun Narang, has now written to the CBSE examination controller to take action in the matter. Narang was commuting from Dwarka Courts Metro station to Janakpuri when he came across the parcel


Narang asked for strict action against the centre and their Superintendent, also asked for setting up an independent committee to probe the incident.

He further requested the CBSE to investigate how many centres in Delhi and NCR have been dispatching answer sheets in the similar way.


The board said it is yet to receive the complaint, but added that transporting answer sheets has to be done with utmost caution. “It is a very confidential thing and there is a set parameter. Transporting answer sheets in public is not allowed,” said Rama Sharma, the CBSE public relation officer.
