The minister said, "Coaching centres will remain closed and no photocopy machine will be allowed in the vicinity of the exam centres."
"We have set up a monitoring cell. If there is any problem, the cell can be contacted. There will also be magistrates at the examination centres and they will look after the overall issues," the minister added.
He said that the government will be vigilant against any type of rumours during and after the exam and also reassured that question papers will not be leaked this year.
