Plugging Leaks: GPS-Enabled Vehicles to Carry Question Papers in Bengaluru!

The authorities are taking no chances, and will use GPS-enabled vehicles for security.

Plugging Leaks: GPS-Enabled Vehicles to Carry Question Papers in Bengaluru!

Exam papers getting leaked is a common problem. As authorities try to reign in the situation, thousands of students have to bear the possibility of the exam getting cancelled or rescheduled. In the minds of the anxious students, nothing spells chaos more than uncertainty, and this is why the authorities take steps to ensure that the question papers are handled with utmost care.

Following the question paper leak reported during 2016 March/April exams, Karnataka’s State Department of Primary and Secondary Education is taking no chances and has decided that all vehicles used to transport question papers for the upcoming SSLC and second-year pre-university final exams will be fitted with GPS tracking devices.

The police department suggested the use of GPS-enabled vehicles, and the department decided to implement this, along with a slew of other safety measures. CCTV cameras will be fitted at exam centres, as well as district and taluk treasuries, where these question papers will be deposited. Additionally, the Deputy Directors of Pre University Departments in all districts have been asked to take steps to implement the same.

These GPS systems will provide live-tracking with updates, geo-fencing alerts, route deviation notifications, device status, and other features.

These are just security measures on the transportation front, and other measures like the biometric attendance of examiners, squads, and other staff, will be implemented to make sure the students have a smooth, glitch-free and well-organised examination season.
