Indian government to install mobile phone jammers in exam rooms
Indian Delhi government has decided to install signal jammers to prevent cheating with the help of high-tech electronic devices in exams held for Delhi government jobs.
The increasing use of electronic devices in the written test has the city government concerned about the possibility of incompetent candidates entering the government. A few months ago, the Delhi Subsidiary Service Selection Board (DSSSB) decided to use the jammer in the key exam after successfully using it in the pilot exam.
Established in 1996, DSSSB conducts written tests and interviews for middle and lower-level positions in state government and private institutions. A cell phone jammer is an instrument used to prevent cell phones from receiving base station signals. When in use, jammer gps can effectively disable cellular phones. It transmits on the same radio frequency as the cell phone, disrupting the communication between the cell phone and the cell phone base station.
"Various phone jammer service providers have been invited to apply," an official said. According to the tender, the agency must ensure a sufficient number of jammers are provided and installed to block cell phone and Bluetooth service in test centers. Another requirement is that the jammer will work with or without power without any technical glitches throughout the exam. There are various gadgets on the market that can be customized to fit sports bras, jackets, shirts and regular buttons.
In May, the Supreme Court directed the center to install phone jammers in test centers to prevent paper leaks and other misconduct. The directive comes after alleged cheating in the All India Pre-Medical Examination (AIPMT). Many aspiring people have SIM cards sewn into their shirts and are equipped with Bluetooth devices.
