Must read

New Delhi: Rastriya Ispat Nigam Limited (RINL) has denied reports in a section of media/TV channels that claimed question papers for RINL recruitment exam for Junior Trainee & OCM posts were leaked. “There were reports in a section of media/electronic channels that alleged leakage of question paper related to the online test for recruitment of Junior Trainee and OCM posts which were held on September 7 and 8 at 30 cities in 142 venues on PAN-India basis. RINL was also in receipt of e-mails on September 10 with allegation of paper leakage in JT online test, enclosing the screenshots of the question paper from an exam screen,” RINL said in an official statement released on Friday.

RINL ordered an inquiry into recruitment exam

RINL management viewed the issue seriously and ordered a thorough enquiry into the matter.

On verification, it was found that the screenshot belonged to Srikanth Dasari, Regd No: RINL 19116241, who appeared for the online test at Vivekananda Institute of Technology and Science, Karimnagar, Telangana, for Junior Trainee-Mechanical discipline on September 9 in the morning session.

The test conducting agency was asked to investigate the issue and submit a detailed report on the allegation. The agency, through an internal process analysis and verification of the CCTV footage of the lab in which the candidate had taken the test, submitted the findings.

The findings of the agency

The agency said in its report, “It is suspected that the candidate has used a high-end sophisticated device/camera embedded in a pen/pendent worn by the candidate. The candidate checking process was done by physical frisking and a hand-held metal detector and hence the candidate was not in possession of mobile phone during the exam.”

As per the CCTV footage, the candidate did not receive external help through any communication devise or through any test administrators, in the exam hall. The candidate uploaded the screen shots of the examination on social media, 48 hours after the last examination was held. Hence, the said incident was clearly not a paper leak.

From the CCTV footage it is apparent that the candidate has indulged in malpractice by trying to smuggle out the questions during the online test, the agency said.

RINL has filed an FIR

In the above background, RINL has filed a complaint/FIR at the concerned police station at Karimnagar and has also blacklisted Dasari from all future recruitments of RINL for indulging in malpractice.

As a preventive measure and also to improve the security during online recruitment tests of RINL in all future recruitments, the management has decided to forbid examinees from carrying stationary items like pens, pencils, scales, watches, health bands, foot wear, jackets, goggles, jewellery viz; chains, earrings, metal bangles, nose pins, necklace, pendants etc, by the candidates into the exam hall. Further, the agency shall be asked to supply pens to the candidates for their use during the online test.
