Karnataka SSLC Exam: Now, if you fake it, you’ll land in trouble


Education department forms committee to tackle fake news and misinformation, plans to file criminal charges against culprits

With the Karnataka government set to conduct the SSLC exams from June 25, the biggest challenge faced by the government is tackling misinformation in the form of fake news. The department has now set up a special team to keep a check on fake news and rumours and also intends to file a criminal complaint against those caught spreading misinformation.

As per the latest order issued by the Commissioner for Public Instruction KG Jagadeesha, “We have noticed that a few miscreants are spreading fake news related to SSLC exams. Hence, we have notified the nodal officers (Karnataka Secondary Education Examination Board secretary at the state level and deputy director of public instruction at the district level) will monitor such fake news and have been empowered to lodge police complaints.” SSLC exams will be held between June 25 and July 4.

An official said, “The state government has accorded top priority to conduct hassle-free SSLC exams. Every year, rumours about question paper leaks are circulated and have the potential to derail the examination. The government is taking all precautions and won’t hesitate to book a case against the culprits.”
