According to a recent report, hundreds of National Institute of Open Schooling (NIOS) students in Madhya Pradesh have passed their class 10th and 12th examination without even taking the exams.

The incident came to light when the HRD Ministry probed the irregularities in the declaration of results on the request of NIOS.

The Chairman of NIOS, Chandra B Sharma had earlier recommended the centre to conduct a detailed investigation into the serious irregularities in result declaration in Madhya Pradesh's three NIOS examination centres, namely Ratlam, Umaria and Sehore.

The chairman, talking to a media outlet said, "I do not want to name the vigilance agency at this moment."

“We wanted a fair inquiry, which is why the committee members were not from within the NIOS system. They submitted their findings of 20 days ago, based on which I have recommended a proper investigation,” he added.

The National Institute of Open Schooling is an autonomous education board functioning under the Ministry of Human Resource and Development. The institution, established in 1989, is considered to be the largest Open School Board around the world.

According to reports, the HRD Ministry had set-up a three-member inquiry team back in June to probe the irregularities in the state.
