Odisha: CHSE decided to change around 20 examination centres following the centre fixing allegations


Bhubaneswar: Following the centre fixing allegations levelled by two members of the Plus II Examination Managing Committee on February 7, the Council of Higher Secondary Education (CHSE) has decided to change around 20 examination centres in the State. A CHSE official made an announcement in this regard on Sunday.

Two members of Plus II Examination Managing Committee, Santosh Singh Saluja and Kishore Mohanty, had expressed their displeasure over the selection of examination centres and accused the CHSE of centre fixing. Saluja had alleged that the centres were chosen without consulting the managing committee. Later, both members staged a walkout from the committee meeting.

A Mass Education Department official had said that as per the guidelines, Government colleges were selected as centres on a priority basis and self-financing colleges were the second choice. A meeting of the committee was held on January 16 and 17 to finalise the list of centres and the recommendations prepared accordingly were sent to the Government.
