CBSE board exams started in February and will continue till 5th March. After the exam started, it has come to the notice of the Board that certain unscrupulous elements are regularly spreading rumours on YouTube, Facebook, Twitter and other social media platforms about paper leak or claiming to have access to question papers of 2023 exams.
These persons, groups and agencies are demanding money in return to give access to papers to students. These irresponsible activities create confusion among students and the public.
The Board is vigilant and active in identifying and taking action against those spreading fake news and rumours. CBSE is regularly instructing Delhi Police Special Cell (MAC) to take stern action against persons involved in circulating fake news using social media platforms under various provisions of IPC and IT Act.
Note: Strict action will be taken against a student under UNFAIR MEANS rules and various sections of IPC if found indulging in spreading fake news.
