New Delhi: In the backdrop of the Class 12 economics question paper leak, the Human Resources Development (HRD) Ministry has set up a high-power committee to examine the CBSE’s examination process.

The committee, constituted on Tuesday, comprises experts under the chairmanship of former HRD Secretary V.S. Oberoi.

It will suggest measures to make the exam process “secure and foolproof through the use of technology” and submit a report by May 31 to the HRD ministry.

The move comes after the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) came under widespread attack after the economic question paper got leaked, affecting lakhs of students.

The government has announced a re-examination of the CBSE Class 12 economics paper on April 25. But it ruled out any re-test for Class 10 mathematics question paper which too was said to have been leaked.

Delhi Police is probing the leak following a complaint by the CBSE.
