PIB Fraud Alert 2022
School students are advised to be vigilant and report such fraud to the CBSE authorities. Every year the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) requests the submission of a List of Candidates (LOC) from the school students who appear for classes 10 and 12 board exams.
However, this year the CBSE Board gave a proposal to schools to submit students' lists for CBSE Class 10, and 12 board exam 2023 through the e-pariksha online link given on the CBSE official website - cbse.gov.in.
Moreover, the CBSE board had reportedly allowed private students to do registration for the CBSE board exams 2023 from September 17, 2022. Further, it was announced that the CBSE Board exams 2023 will be conducted for students who study privately probably in February, March, or April along with the annual CBSE exam.
According to an official statement, the Press Information Bureau (PIB) urged all students of classes 10 and 12 that “cbsegovt.com” is not associated with the Central education board and gave clarification that the original CBSE Board website is cbse.gov.in.
The fake portal created the result and admit card links along with the exam fee payment link. The government flagged the fake website for exam date sheets and fee payments. The PIB fact-checked news circulated on social media and warned students about the same.
