Bengaluru: The competitive exams for teachers for 15,000 vacancies in different districts to be held on May 21 and May 22 will now be held be under strong vigilance, said Primary and Secondary Education minister B. C. Nagesh.
The move comes in the wake of controversial Police Sub-Inspector (PSI) recruitment scam that has created commotion in the whole of State.
Speaking to mediapersons on Tuesday May 10, Nagesh said, “We are implementing two-level screening of the candidates wherein the students will be checked by the police officers and education officials thoroughly. No electronic devices including watches will be allowed inside the examination centres, he informed.
Further, Nagesh added that a three-member committee comprising Superintendent of Police (SP), Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Zilla Panchayat and Deputy Commissioner (DC) will be appointed in every District. Strict action will be taken against any malpractice, he asserted.
The examinations will be held in 435 centres across the State. Section 144 will be imposed in 200-metre-radius around all exam centres for the two days CCTV cameras will be installed in all the classrooms. A separate room will be constituted as well to monitor the candidates.
