    Being a computer professional, he has simply run a program that inserted all the roll numbers after selecting the range in order to get access to the complete result. After he concluded that he was amazed to see that no major security program is not implemented in the database of ISC and ICSE.
    Das found an interesting absurdity in the marking system of ICSE (Class X) result that shows 33 various marks are remain unattended between the range of 33 to 100 whereas 1,50,000 students appeared for the exam. He added that the similar issue has been encountered in ISC (Class XII) result. Whereas Gerry Arathoon, the chairperson of the CI SCE (Council for the Indian School Certificate Examinations) refused to state any comments before checking by himself.

    He has given "Hacking into the Indian Education System", as the title of his internet post where he has mentioned all the flaws that he encountered in the Indian Education System.
