Dos & Don'ts for Examination under PMGDISHA

Dos

  • Training centres will nominate the Examination Centre Superintendent, who in turn shall be authorized to verify the candidates at the time of examination and in case of any malpractice including impersonation cases, that ES will be held responsible and CSC-SPV shall take necessary action against that centre.
  • A training centre can allocate more than one Superintendent at the training centres .The Superintendent should have basic computer knowledge. He can be a government teacher, Government officers or a member of Panchayat
  • The Superintendent must be present at all times during the examination of the candidates
  • All the examination candidates shall have carry their original Aadhaar Card and photo Identity card. No photo copy shall be accepted during the examination.
  • Make sure that the photo on the photo identity card is clear and visible to the proctor
  • During the examination the proctors ask for photo and photo identity card of the candidates which might not be clear. The proctors ask to resubmit the same again and again till picture & identity card is clear, this increases the waiting time. Hence, it would help if a clear photo and photo identity cards are submitted on the first go.
  • Candidates shall carry their ID proofs while appearing for examination as proctor can ask for their ID proofs any time during exam.
  • The examination system should be equipped with basic software and infrastructure i.e. Web camera, Biometric Device & Updated Java
