Considerable decline in copying cases: BOSE Chairman

Excelsior Correspondent
JAMMU, Dec 3: Prof Zahoor Ahmad Chatt, Chairman of J&K Board of School Education  today claimed a considerable decline in the case of copying because of various steps taken by the BOSE  to curb the menace.
The Board authorities are determined to reduce this unholy practice to zero level and stringent action will be taken against delinquent officials as well as the people involved in this heinous crime, he said while talking to media persons at the BOSE office, here today.
The Chairman also sought to clarify that the BOSE officials can not be blamed for printing errors in question papers as the no officer of the Board has any role in paper setting.  There is variety of reasons responsible for such typographical or printing mistakes though every effort is made to make foolproof arrangements in printing of question papers leaving no room for any mistake, he added.
Refuting the media reports on alleged scarcity of books, the Chairman said that a sufficient number of books were available in the store of the BOSE. Sometimes it becomes difficult to send the books to far off places, which are out of bound due to weather hiccups, snow and bad road connectivity etc, he explained.
Books have been supplied to the maximum Government schools in entire Kashmir province as well as in Leh and Kargil while the remaining supply of books is under process and shall be completed by December 5, 2015, he informed and added that in Jammu province, books have been dispatched to the far-flung areas like Dachan, Marwah and Wadwan in Kishtwar and remote areas of Doda as well as other districts.
Expressing satisfaction over the functioning of BOSE, Prof Zahoor informed that the J&K Board has been rated among the four top boards, out of 24, of the country for maintaining data and record in perfect order, provided to the CBSE for the smooth conduct of competitive exams for admission to various professional courses. It shows that the performance of J&K Board is remarkable and the future of our student community is in safe hands, he added.
Prof Veena Pandita, Secretary Board, Dr Farooq Ahmad Peer, Joint Secretary Administration, Jammu division and Director Academics, Kaneez Fatima, were also present in the press conference.
