Bihar candidate's admit card viral with picture of Telugu actoress

The Bihar School Examination Board (BSEB) is being ridiculed on social media for issuing a male candidate a score sheet with the image of a south Indian female actor while also battling allegations of irregularities within the Secondary Teachers’ Eligibility Test (STET) merit list.

A Jehanabad based candidate Rishikesh Kumar was declared qualified within the teachers’ recruitment examination but excluded from the merit list like many other candidates, who have questioned the board’s criteria for compiling the merit list, leaving out successful candidates. The apparent irregularity within the merit list isn't Kumar’s only problem, he was also issued a result sheet attached with a photograph of Telugu and Malayalam actress Anupama Parameswaran, making the social media go crazy over the state education department’s carelessness.

BSEB released STET 2019 results for recruitment of 12 subjects’ teachers on March 12 and pending results for 3 subjects’ teachers of Urdu, Sanskrit and science on summer solstice .

Kumar said he had registered a complaint with the board last year for inserting the feminine actor’s photograph in his admit card and also sought photo correction in January last year, however, it had been clear that it didn’t work. When approached by HT, he refused to speak on the difficulty .

A senior BSEB official said, “We are looking into the matter. It seems the error was committed by the pc operator.”

When asked how the scholar made through verification and frisking at the exam centre with a wrong photograph on the admit card, the official said, “The board instructs all candidates to hold their photo-attached identity proof like Aadhar card, driver's license , bank passbook, passport etc at exam centres. just in case of any mistake or mismatch, we allow students to require the exam after verifying their details.”

Despite several attempts, BSEB’s chairman Anand Kishor couldn't be reached for discuss this issue.

247,000 students took the STET 2019 exam across 317 exam centres on January 28 last year after a niche of nearly eight years for recruitment to 37,000 secondary and senior secondary teachers’ posts across the state. However, the exam was declared void in May following paper leak and re-examination was conducted in September through online mode.

Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) leader Tejashwi Yadav on Thursday took a jibe at Nitish Kumar government on twitter.

“After Sunny Leone topped within the junior engineering exam, now Anupama Parameswaran has passed the state STET exam. With scam in every exam and recruitment process, Nitish ji is destroying the longer term of many youth. He takes one decade to finish one recruitment process that's too riddled with scam” he tweeted, pertaining to the 2019 incident when Bollywood actor Sunny Leone was incorrectly named the topper within the draft merit list for the post of junior engineers, released by Bihar Public Health Engineering Department (PHED).
