The Pune division of the Maharashtra State Board of Secondary and Higher Secondary Education (MSBSHSE) has been accused of failing to deploy flying squads in rural parts of the neighbouring Ahmednagar district for examination of English paper during the ongoing HSC, on Friday.
Since English is considered one of the toughest subjects for students, malpractice cases are reportedly relatively high for examination of this language subject, especially in rural areas.
The state board, every year, forms flying squads in every district of Maharashtra with an aim to put a curb on malpractice cases during examinations.

“We have been informed that the Pune division of the state board could not arrange flying squads in rural parts of Ahmednagar district on the day of examination of English subject. This can be seen as a major lapse since flying squads ensure proper vigil during examinations. The state board should launch a proper inquiry into the matter and punish those who are guilty,” a local leader of the Junior College Teachers Association said, on condition of anonymity.
10 malpractice cases were reported from Ahmednagar on the day of the English examination on Friday.
Authorities at Pune division of the State Board, however, denied having any knowledge about a lapse in arranging flying squads. “We have not come across any report so far about non deployment of flying squads in Ahmednagar district on Friday. We will seek more details from concerned district level authorities to verify the same,” Sunil Chauhan, chairman of Pune division of the state board, told Newsline.
Pushpalata Pawar, secretary of Pune division of the state board, said around seven squads in districts of Pune division have been formed to keep check.
Boycott still on
Junior college teachers have continued their boycott of assessment of answer-sheets of students for the third consecutive day, and the meeting of chief moderators could also not take place on Saturday. Leaders of agitating teachers met deputy chief minister Ajit Pawar on Friday and apprised him about their pending demands. “We are hopeful that the state government will come out with necessary government resolution by next week,” leaders said.
