The Department of Higher Education (DHE) on Thursday asked all the Collectors to set up district level committees in one month to look into formation of Examination Management Hubs (EMHs).

The State Government had recently approved examination reforms in Plus II level proposed by the Department. One of them was setting up EMHs.

The department would set up 200 EMHs where question papers will be stored prior to the examination.

Each hub will comprise four to five colleges and all other examination centres identified by the Council of Higher Secondary Education (CHSE) would be tagged to the EMHs.

A district-level committee comprising Collector, SP, deputy secretary of the respective zone and four college principals in the district would select colleges for formation of EMH on the basis of infrastructure, manpower and their proximity to the police station.

Question papers shall be dispatched from the Council to the EMH two days before the examination and from the EMH, question papers will be sent to other examination centres amid heavy security on the day of examination between 7 am and 9 am.

The Examination Management Hubs would be declared a temporary treasury by the Government.

Secretary of the Department Gagan Dhal said while the Collectors have been asked to look into formation of the district committees within one month, all the reforms will be implemented before February next year.
