New Delhi: In an exclusive interview with TV9 Bharatvarsh, Dr. Meenu Vajpayee, Vice-Chairman, National Examination Council, said that a foolproof system has been developed under the National Examination Board for the NEET PG exam, which was earlier cancelled. She further stressed that the exam papers are now prepared just a few hours before the exam to completely prevent any potential leaks.

Everything under the supervision of the Ministry of the Interior

Dr. Vajpayee said that the Home Ministry is closely monitoring the whole matter. She mentioned that the audit is being monitored by CERT-In and the Cybercrime Team. She added that there are ongoing meetings in the Home Ministry in this regard.

The newspaper is only two hours before

She said that the National Examination Board has been conducting the NEET exam for more than 40 years and there has never been any irregularity in this exam. She said that this time the exam papers are being prepared just two hours before the exam, so the rumours about the launch are just talk.

The government has prepared a foolproof system

She said the government had conducted a comprehensive investigation. “We have communicated all our procedures to the government and all agencies have carefully prepared for possible cases of document leaks or exam fraud.”

The questions will be code-based

She said that the questions for 230,000 students will be prepared from a special server. “We have engaged TCS (Tata Consultancy) for this purpose. When the questions are generated by the server, they will be encrypted. The entire process will be code-based and this code will be decoded only at the exam centre.”

The answers are checked at the office of the National Examination Council.

She mentioned that the answers of all the exam questions will now be checked by us instead of Tata Consultancy. The checking system will also be carried out at the National Examination Council office where the answer sheets of all the students will be evaluated.
