The cameras were not working and the security guard was also missing

According to the report, the two mandatory CCTV cameras were not working at many centres and at some places even the 'strong rooms' containing the question papers were found open. There was no security guard there either. This review regarding security was done by an independent agency on the instructions of NTA i.e. National Testing Agency. NTA is the agency that conducts the NEET exam. The review team visited 399 examination centres out of a total of 4,000. These centres were selected by NTA and the review team with mutual consent. The review team submitted its report to NTA on 16 June. The surprising thing is that this report was submitted to NTA 12 days after the exam results were declared. Know further what revelations were made in the report.

Violation of CCTV norms at 46% centres

The review team found that at 186 out of 399 centres, or 46 per cent centres, the mandatory two CCTV cameras in each exam hall were not working. As per NTA rules, the live feed of CCTV cameras installed at exam centres should be sent to a central control room at the NTA headquarters in Delhi. It should be monitored by a team of experts there.

Strong rooms at 16% centres are unguarded

The report also revealed that out of 399 centres, 68, or about 16 per cent, had no security guards posted in the strong rooms. According to the rules, the strong room should be guarded by a guard until the question papers are distributed.

There is also a problem of biometric staff

The report also found that the biometric staff at 83 centres was different from the staff appointed for those centres. The purpose of this review was to identify any irregularities or non-adherence to the prescribed guidelines at the centres on the day of the exam.

What did the review team investigate?

Security at exam centres
Whether the jammers are working or not, whether they are covering all the necessary rooms or not. Things like physical security of the examination centre, access to the examination centre, movement of people at the centre, search as per need etc. were checked.

seating arrangements
The review team also checked whether the students were sitting on their assigned seats or not.

Attendance of employees
It was also observed whether adequate number of inspectors, CCTV personnel and other necessary staff were present at the centre or not.

Why questions arose on NEET exam

NTA has been facing criticism ever since the NEET-UG 2024 results were declared on June 4, the day of the Lok Sabha election results. First, an unusually large number of 67 candidates got 720/720 full marks. Some candidates got 718 or 719 marks. Some people claimed that these marks were not possible in the scheme of the examination. At the same time, NTA is also facing allegations of NEET paper leak in Bihar, where the state police has arrested 13 people. Four of the 13 arrested are candidates who had taken the NEET exam. Apart from this, two examination centers in Godhra, Gujarat are also under the scanner of the state police. Here the candidates were allegedly helped to fill the correct answers in their OMR sheets.
