Srinagar: After the Matric (class 10th) result leak leaked J&K Board of School Education (JKBOSE) tall claims of authenticity and transparency and shamed the conducting authority, JKBOSE may soon install Close Circuit TV (CCTV) cameras and other audio recording devices in the secrecy room, strong room and code room in its Srinagar office to ensure secrecy.

After installation of about a dozen Close Circuit TV (CCTV) cameras and other audio recording devices in the secrecy room, strong room and code room in Jammu office, JKBOSE is mulling to install devices in its Srinagar office.

Police is currently investigating the result leak but so far the investigating agency is clueless and has not got any breakthrough.

Apart from the result leak this week, the question paper leakage scandal had hit the JKBOSE April last year. In a damage control exercise, the board has installed about a dozen Close Circuit TV (CCTV) cameras and other audio recording devices in the secrecy room, strong room and code room in Jammu office, which deals with the question and answer papers.

However sources told Agence India Press that, in Srinagar, the project has got delayed due to the summer unrest and some other reasons. Sources said that BOSE has also pressed in extra human force to frisk the employees entering different blocks of the building. It has already decided to give custody of the question papers to Jammu and Kashmir bank, to ensure that board officials have little contact with the papers.

A middle rung officer told Agence India Press that they will be using the modern technology to ensure proper security of the question papers. “It does not mean we are spying on the employees, but it is necessary to put black sheeps under the scanner and identify them”, said the officer.

After the paper leak scandal hit the state in April last year, JKBOSE was forced to take hurried steps to save its skin. Sources said that officials have also decided that from now on the question papers will be issued to the superintendent of the examination on the day of the examination either in the hall or an hour before the commencement of the examination.

It is pertinent to mention here that it was third year in a row that question papers of the 12th standard and 10th standard were leaked out by the officials from the inner circle of the JKBOSE.

Thousands of students take admissions in professional colleges across the country after qualifying 10+2 examinations conducted by JKBOSE. During the investigations, the police had unearthed leakage of three question papers of the secondary class and one paper of higher secondary class Part-II. Officials said that similar modus-oprendi was going on in Kashmir valley. “To put it in simple terms, JKBOSE does not have faith on its employee’s right from a peon to a joint secretary; many people are still involved in the racket. This is how future of our children is being shaped”, commented a senior officer wishing anonymity. (AIP)
