BHUBANESWAR: The State Government has decided to form a five-tier squad system this year to check malpractice during the Plus Two examinations.

After the incident of question paper leak in 2013, the Council of Higher Secondary Education (CHSE) had put in place a four-tier squad system. Apart from squads at each examination centre, Government used to form squads at district-level, zonal-level and CHSE-level to conduct raids and ensure that the examinations are held without any problem.

From this year, the Department of Higher Education (DHE) will form another squad to make surprise visits to the examination centres, said Chairman of CHSE Basudev Chattoi.

For each district, 30 flying squads will be formed and every squad will be managed by the District Level Consultant (DLC), who will be assigned by the DHE. Three college officials of lecturer rank will form a squad.

The State has been divided into central zone (Bhubaneswar), southern zone (Berhampur), northern zone (Baripada) and western zone (Sambalpur) and a Deputy Secretary has been assigned by the Council for each zone. Each squad will cover minimum two colleges everyday.

This year, 1029 examination centres have been set up. At least 3,71,920 students will appear at the examinations in all the four streams of Arts, Science, Commerce and Vocational.

Meanwhile, the Department of Higher Education on Monday opened bidding for e-evaluation of Science papers. While six private agencies participated in the bidding process, one of them will be selected on Tuesday, said Higher Education Minister Pradeep Panigrahi. The agency will be responsible for scanning and digitising the answer booklets each comprising 32 pages of Science papers along with the e-evaluation marking on the answer book images.

While the practical examinations for Plus Two are already over, the theory examinations for Science, Arts and Commerce would start from March 2, 3 and 4 respectively.
