NEW DELHI, APRIL 4: A High Powered Committee has been constituted by the Central Government to examine the system of conducting Class X and Class XII examination to prevent leakages. The seven-member Committee will be headed by former Secretary of Higher Education in the Ministry of Human Resource Development, Vinay Sheel Oberoi.

The MHRD has constituted a High Powered Committee to examine the entire system of conducting Class X and Class XII examination conducted by the CBSE with a view to preventing leakages. The High-Powered Committee will submit its report in two months (May 31).

The Committee has been entrusted with the task to revisit all aspects related to the security checks built into the system for ensuring that the Question papers reach the examinees without tampering.
