Officials have also presented plans to grade exam centres based on their ‘sensitivity’ and also prohibit entry of unauthorized people within 50 meters of the centre. Police presence is also being increased around the exam centre and the education commissioner has been appointed as the campaign nodal officer while the district collectors have been assigned to coordinate the campaign.
