Bhopal, Madhya Pradesh (India) & Aliso Viejo, California (USA) – 2 Dec 2016: On behalf of the Professional Examination Board, Shri Bhaskar Lakshakar (IAS) Director, PEB, announced that PEB has been successfully conducting all exams online since Sept. 2015 and that this has brought in a higher degree of transparency and speed.
Shri Lakshakar said - “The decision to make PEB exams fully online has helped tremendously – data security and faster result processing are just two of the factors that have improved. The candidates are able to know their scores as soon as they complete the exam. As per feedback from the candidates, most of them are satisfied with the online exams and the enhanced transparency. Making exams fully online also has us prepared for 2017 and the calendar is published. I am also proud to state that there are no exams for which results are pending, except for the most recent one. The credit for this goes to my entire team including UST Global.”
The Professional Examination Board (PEB), Madhya Pradesh, India has the mandate to conduct all examinations (entrance exams and recruitment exams) for the state government, except those under the purview of the Public Services Commission. PEB’s decision to make exams fully online is also aligned to the larger Digital India mission. Online exams have also brought a higher degree of transparency. Security features like One Time Passwords (OTP) and signal jammers have given a confidence boost to all, especially the candidates. PEB has also linked Aadhaar enabled biometrics to ensure candidate authenticity.
Today s mobile proliferation and internet connectivity has been leveraged by PEB to connect better with candidates, especially in rural areas with its mobile app and push sms etc.
At the onset some candidates were concerned about the lack of computer literacy. Over the course of the year PEB has successfully proved this to be myth and established the fact that the only skills required is to operate the mouse and input their OTP. PEB has also provided mock tests through its website. It has gone one step ahead and tied up with Regional Capacity Building Centers to provide mock tests to candidates which also help the candidates gain confidence on the required computer skills.
“We are delighted to work with PEB in this endeavor. It gives us great satisfaction to be an enabler of the digital journey that is changing the face of governance in Madhya Pradesh. This fits well with our mission of transforming lives through digital and technology”, said Mr. Alexander Varghese, Chief Administrative Officer (CAO), UST Global.
On an earlier occasion, during the signing of a MoU between the Govt. of Madhya Pradesh (India) & UST Global sign, Shri Shivraj Singh Chouhan, the honorable Chief Minister of Govt. of Madhya Pradesh (India), had said - “This is a very welcome MoU for us. We thank UST Global for its commitment to generating employment. We are happy to be working with them. UST Global has shown interest in starting a Startup Village in their proposed campus. The group chairman was invited for the CEO Conclave and GIS 2016 on 22nd & 23rd Oct. In a recent project with us, UST Global helped us successfully conduct the largest ever online exam at a state level in India that covered approximately 10L candidates, across 14 cities and 90 colleges.
