Sundargarh: In an open violation of strict guidelines by the Board of Secondary Education (BSE), Odisha to install CCTVs in the matric examination centres, four centres in Sundargarh’s Bonai block sans CCTVs.
While the BSE made it mandatory for each examination centre of 10th board exam, the non-compliance of the directive by the school authorities has drawn the attention of the people.
