Indian education system has witnessed various kinds of unethical practice, especially when it comes to board examinations. In Bihar and Uttar Pradesh, mass cheating is a regular affair with respect to examinations. There have been incidences of people narrating the answers hanging from the windows to the examinees. The latest of the incidences have been the leak of the CBSE paper in Delhi.
The probe into the matter, where class 10 maths and class 12 economics question paper were leaked, has revealed that the incidence of paper leakage took place at the papers were in custody of board officials and when those were kept in banks.
The arrest of three men which includes two teachers of a private school in Bawana led the police claiming to have busted a module where the Whatsapp images of the papers have been shared by some teachers one and a half hours before the exam.

The handwritten papers were also circulated a day to two before the exam that has been corroborated at the board level or the time they were in kept in the banks.
Meanwhile, the police are yet to take a decision on whether to book the principal of the school, whose two teachers were allegedly involved in the economics paper leak.
“There was laxity on his part since he allowed the question papers to be opened before time and even informed students about some of the questions in advance but so far, we have not found anything to indicate that he received a share of the money the accused got for leaking the paper,” the police officer claimed.
Such shameful and acts expose the hollowness of our education system. The cheating and fraudulence have come to such levels that even the examinations cannot be held in honesty. Indian education system can take some cue from European educations considered as one of the very best and clean system anywhere in the world. Stooping such low in the matter of education will not augur well for India in terms of the development of the social sector. If the social sector is not developed, India will fall behind other emerging economies such as BRICS nations, an eventuality that would be a body blow to our nation.
