The news came days after Indian army candidates were made to sit in their underwear in a field to give a written exam to deter cheating during a recruitment day in Muzaffarpur on Feb.
On March 2, more than 200 students were caught cheating in the Madhya Pradesh Board of Secondary Education (MPBSE) examination in Bhind district on the first day. Students were caught with chit papers and mobile phones inside examination halls.
The cheating practices have become quite common in India. On February 25, the control room set up in Bihar School Examination Board (BSEB) said a total of 426 students were expelled across the state on the first day of the examination.
Last year also in Bihar, students in both states were caught doing mass cheating during exams.
