Date : February

Posted By : Vineeta

ALLAHABAD: The UP Board has decided to withdraw recognition to schools that failed to send teachers for invigilation work in the ongoing class X and XII examination. Besides, the board has also announced cancellation of leaves of all teachers and asked them to immediately report for duty. 


The Board is in the process of compiling the list of schools that did not send teachers for invigilation work. A board official said, "Most of the schools had furnished details of number of academic and non-academic staff at the time of seeking registration. However, in reality most of these schools rely on guest teachers. Hence, the shortage of invigilators." 

Secreatry, Amarnath Verma said, "The DIoS have been asked to take action against schools that failed to send their teachers for invigilation work despite prior notice. Action will also be taken against teachers found absent during duty hours." 

Following news of widespread copying, across the state, in absence of invigilators, the board has directed district inspector of schools (DIoS) of all 75 districts to withdraw recognition of schools that fail to provide a suitable explanation for failure to send teachers. 

The Board has also directed DIoS to serve show cause notices to schools that failed to send teachers for duty on day one and two of the exams and direct them to send their teachers for invigilation work with immediate effect. 

The decision was taken following reports of centres using a couple of available invigilators to conduct the exams owing to scarcity of teachers. At few centres, even clerks were roped in for invigilation work. 

The board has also cancelled leaves of teachers and asked them to report for duties immediately. Officials have also warned of stringent action against those failing to report for duty. 

Sources claimed that on the first day of the board, only 50% of the invigilators reported for duty at centres situated in remote areas of the state.
