Deploy women cops for Dec 8 exam: PGI to UT
He added, “The examination was being conducted by PGI. So they have to ensure that students do not use unfair means. It is the job of an invigilator, and not of a police official. If the PGI authorities want, we can give them guidance with regard to the precautions they should take”.
Pointing out the precautions taken by the authorities who conducted the examination of the Punjab Public Service Commission (PPSC), the SSP said that it could be an example for the PGI authorities. Without the use of mobile phone signal jammers and other such equipment, the PPSC authorities were able to conduct the exam peacefully.
Rupanjali Karthik, PPSC secretary, said, “At a meeting of senior officials, a suggestion was made to install jammers at all the examination centres. However, when the expenses and consumption of labour of the entire programme was calculated, the idea was dropped”.
PPSC authorities had decided to install six hundred jammers, she said. Karthik added that jammers were not sufficient to block signals from all the telecom service providers.
The PPSC authorities then approached the Punjab Police and police constables in civil clothes were deputed at all the centre.
