- It has been observed in the past that during exam time certain unscrupulous elements make effect to spread rumours on YouTube, Facebook, X, Telegram and other social media platforms about paper leaks to claim to have access to question papers of exams. 

- Miscreants also circulate fake links of sample papers with the claim that questions will be from those sample papers. 

- Miscreants also circulate fake pictures/videos of question papers which they claim that they have access of question papers which could be made available against payment of money.

-It further added that these persons, groups and agencies intend to fleece the gullible students and parents as they demand money in return. Such irresponsible activities also create confusion and panic among the students and the public.

- CBSE is closely monitoring the situation with the help of law enforcement agencies to take stern action against persons involved in circulating fake news on social media platforms under various provisions of the IPC and IT Act, it said.

- It further added that CBSE will take action against a student under UNFAIR MEANS rules and various sections of IPC if found indulging in spreading fake news. Parents are also requested to guide their wards not to believe in such rumours and not indulge in any such activity which hampers the smooth conduct of forthcoming Board examinations.
