The Haryana School Education department has issued instructions for compliance by one and all to curb the menace of copying.
Any complicity or liberty on the part of the Head of School which paves way for copying to score false result for the school for personal benefits of the Head of School would not be tolerated, an official statement said here on Thursday.
According to the instructions issued by Joint Secretary Virender Singh, the marks given by a subject teacher and the actual performance of a student before an inspecting officer in respect of same questions can be different only up to 20 per cent lower. If a student fails to give 80 per cent correct answers to such questions before the inspecting officer then the subject teacher would be held responsible for fake marking.
During examination or monthly assessment test, the Head of School, Principal or Head Master would remain present. Provided that in case of rarest of rare exigencies the second incharge may be deployed as substitute.
The Head of School would be personally responsible for making plan of the test to get it conducted in a fair and square manner. If during the surprise checking any copying is found to be taking place then only a Head of School would be responsible for damaging the examination process.
If an invigilator allows copying and the Head of School asks him to stop copying and the invigilator does not cooperate, then the Head of School would report this fact to the Headquarter for disciplinary action against such invigilator. But, in any case, on the date of exam, if actual copying is found to be taking place by any surprise inspection then only and only Head of School would be responsible.
Head of School, while being saddled with the sole responsibility of stopping the copying, would have sole authority to utilise the invigilation resources for effective conduction of the exam and seek compliance from the invigilators.
