The guidelines issued under the anti-paper leak statute have been issued by the central government. The National Recruitment Agency (NRA) has also been directed to create strict standards in addition to this.

The nation is devastated due to the fraud of the NEET-UG exams. However, the opposition has also started to speak out against the national administration on this matter. In the meanwhile, details about the provisions of the recently announced anti-paper leak law has been provided by the central government.

The National Recruitment Agency (NRA) has been instructed by the national government to create standards for computer-based exams. In addition, NRA has been told to create rules for events that shall take place prior to, during, and following the test. Additionally, NRA has been required to administer online tests as part of the candidate screening process.

This law was put into place to stop exam rigging by the Public Service Commission (UPSC), Staff Selection Commission (SSC), National Testing Agency (NTA), Railway, and Banking Recruitment Exams. Following the law’s implementation, a conviction for paper leak will result in 10 years in prison and a fine of one crore rupees.

This law stipulates that tampering with the answer sheet or revealing the paper will result in a minimum of three years in prison. A fine of up to 10 lakhs can be imposed in order to extend this to five years. According to the Indian Justice Code, 2023, extra penalties, include jail, would be imposed in the event that the fine is not paid.

The service provider who was chosen to perform the examination faces a fine of up to Rs 1 crore if proved guilty. The cost of the exam will be recouped by the service provider if he engages in criminal activity. For a period of four years, the service provider may also be banned from administering any public exams. If an institution is found to be complicit in organized crime, its assets may be seized and attached, and the examination’s reasonable expenses may also be recouped from it.
This is the first national law that forbids the manipulation of hiring exams administered by various organizations.
