news
In June, 1,200 candidates who had not even appeared for the National Institute of Open Schooling (NIOS) exams in Madhya Pradesh were allegedly declared pass in the same. Calling it a big scam, the AAP (Aam Aadmi Party) today petitioned the police here seeking action in connection to the same.

NIOS Chairman Professor Chandra Bhushan Sharma told, "Even before the AAP's intervention, the matter was brought to our notice. We immediately conducted a preliminary probe and after finding discrepancies in the result, ordered a central agency probe into it."

Complaint submitted :

Aam Aadmi Party convenor Alok Agrawal today approached the Maharana Pratap Nagar police station and handed over a 250 page complaint with supporting documents to the law-enforcers, seeking registration of an FIR in the case. He alleged that 1,200 candidates of 3 schools who even did not appear in the exam of NIOS held in March-April 2017 in Madhya Pradesh had been declared to have passed in the same.

"We have received a complaint from AAP on the issue and after investigations will take appropriate action in the matter," Sub Inspector D S Singh said reporters.

After petitioning the police, the AAP convenor alleged that NIOS, which is a body under CBSE, had conducted the exam for class XII board this year and surprisingly passed 1,200 candidates belonging to 3 schools in Madhaya Pradesh despite the fact that they did not even appear in the exam.

"Out of 1,224 candidates belonging to 3 schools, only 24 appeared at 3 different examination centres set up for conducting exam. But all 1,224 were declared passed," Alok Agrawal told, adding, "It smacks of major corruption on the lines of the infamous Vyapam scam and an FIR should be registered in the matter."
He also demanded constitution of a SIT under the supervision of a High Court judge to probe the scam.
