CBSE Boards has released a warning notice against rumours and fake information about ongoing board exams and warned that strict actions will be taken against those who are misleading others on social media.
The Central Boards of Secondary Education (CBSE) has issued a warning regarding the circulation of false information regarding paper leaks for the CBSE class 10 and 12 board exams in 2023. The board warned that strict action will be taken against those who are spreading fake news on social media platforms.
This year, almost 38 lakh students are appearing in the CBSE exams. By several provisions of the IPC and the IT Act, the board notified the Delhi Police Special Cell (MAC) to take serious action against anyone responsible for disseminating false information via social media platforms.
According to the CBSE notification, “The Board has been aware of certain unscrupulous forces who are constantly propagating rumours on YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, and other social media platforms about paper leaks or claiming to have access to question papers of 2023 exams.” “These people, organizations, and groups,” it continued, “aim to rob the trusting parents and kids of their money. Students and the public become confused and anxious because of such reckless activities.
Additionally, CBSE stated that it would punish pupils who were discovered to be disseminating false information under the “unfair means” guideline and different IPC provisions. Also, parents are urged to teach their children not to believe such rumours and to refrain from engaging in any other behaviour that can impede the smooth administration of board exams.
