Chair­per­son of Pun­jab School Ed­u­ca­tion Board (PSEB) Te­jin­der Kaur Dhali­wal on Tues­day sus­pended five se­nior of­fi­cials of the board for not de­liv­er­ing sig­na­tures sheets and cut lists ( which con­tains the de­tails of can­di­dates) in some of the ex­am­i­na­tion cen­tres in the state, where re- ex­ams started on Mon­day.

The sus­pended in­cluded joint sec­re­tary Pav­i­tarpal Kaur, deputy sec­re­tary Bal­jeet Kaur Sodhi, as­sis­tant sec­re­taries Kiran Bala, Bhupin­der Kaur and Manjit Kaur.

The ac­tion was taken af­ter com­plaints were re­ceived from the cen­tres at Gur­daspur, Pathankot, Fazilka and Ferozepur, stat­ing that the of­fi­cers did not send sig­na­tures sheets and cut lists, for which su­per­vi­sors had a tough time and even ex­ams were de­layed.

Cut lists are im­por­tant, as the su­per­in­ten­dents have to ar­range the seat­ing ar­range­ments ac­cord­ingly.

Soon af­ter the sus­pen­sion, the mem­bers of Pun­jab School Ed­u­ca­tion Board Union protested against the sus­pen­sion and locked gates of the board of­fice.

Later, the chair­per­son as­sured the mem­bers that a meet­ing would be held on Wed­nes­day in this re­gard.

Speak­ing to HT, Dhali­wal said, “It was sheer neg­li­gence on part of the of­fi­cers con­cerned. We have sus­pended them and even an in­quiry has been marked against them. The su­per­vi­sors and stu­dents were ha­rassed at the ex­am­i­na­tion cen­tres on Mon­day and we will not tol­er­ate this at any cost.”

The board is con­duct­ing re­ex­ams in 17 cen­tres, where the ex­ams were can­celled due to cheat­ing.
