With more than 16 lakh applicants ready to take the Rajasthan Teachers Eligibility Examination (REET) on Sunday, the state government has warned its staff against fraud.
Under a new order, government employees found leaking the questions document will be fired. If it turns out that the staff of a private institute facilitate cheating, their membership will be withdrawn.
Addressing a meeting to review preparations for REET-2021, Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot said when incidents of cheating arise, the hard work of hundreds of thousands of students is wasted.
On top of that, he said the state government provides free travel facilities to all candidates who sit for the exam.
State Transport Minister Pratap Singh Khachariyawas said all road buses are available for free travel by applicants. In addition to this, Lok Parivahan and other private buses are also organized.
In the event that candidates coming to take the exams, especially women, encounter difficulties, representatives of the public, social workers and voluntary organizations should come forward to assist them.
The CM said district collectors should engage volunteer organizations in their respective districts to help applicants.
Rajasthan police on Friday arrested four gang members for an alleged attempt to get fictitious REET 2021 candidates to write.
Police said the four people were arrested with ??5.60 lakh in cash in the state Dausa.
Exam-related conversations and audio recording were retrieved while checking their cellphones, said Dausa SP Anil Kumar Beniwal. He said that during questioning the accused revealed millions of rupees taken from several candidates in different competitions.
The role of some coaching institutes and libraries has come to the fore, he added.
Those arrested were identified as Sumer Meena (35), Dashrath Singh Meena (30), Ramesh Meena (25) and Karan Singh Meena (24).
