Patwari exam: Legal action for carrying phones, planting fake candidates – Times of India

Jaipur: In view of the Patwari Direct Recruitment Examination-2021 on October 23 and 24, Rajasthan Staff Selection Board (RSSB) chairman Hari Prasad Sharma on Thursday said legal action will be taken against candidates who carry mobile phones to the examination halls or try to plant fake candidates.
District collector Antar Singh Nehra on Thursday said that a special train will run for the Patwari recruitment examination on October 23 and 24. This special train will be operated by West Central Railway from Kota to Jaipur via Sawai Madhopur. The train will also reach Kota from Jaipur via Sawai Madhopur on both days.
“Attempting to enter the centres with unwanted material, including mobile phones and other or other communication devices, and planting fake candidates will result in cancellation of their papers. They shall face lifelong ban from appearing in examinations conducted by the board in future. An FIR will also be lodged under the Rajasthan Public Examination (Prevention of Use of Unfair Means) Act,” Sharma said.
He said the candidates must reach the examination centres one and a half hour before the examination begins. “All candidates appearing for the exam will have to follow a dress code. Candidates not following the dress code will not be allowed to enter the exam centres,” said Sharma.
To ensure transparency, multi-faceted technology (frisking) and equipment (metal detectors) will be used by the board.
He said central superintendents, additional central superintendents, internal vigilance teams, and police observers have been deployed at all the examination centres.
“Candidates will be allowed to enter the examination centres only after thorough search, identification on the basis of photo identity cards, frisking and metal-detector checking,” said Sharma.
Arrangements have been made to install CCTV cameras at the examination centres and halls to ensure strict vigilance to keep a tab on cheating and rigging of the exam.
“The board can mark out roll numbers of some suspicious candidates at its own level and confidentially send those to the district administration and police officials for special vigilance,” he said. Out of 15.62 lakh candidates, 5.02 lakh are female candidates.
