     The examination committee of Gujarat Secondary and Higher Secondary Education Board (GSHSEB) has called for the declaration of names and addresses of the 225 students who had their marks increased in the marks-for-cash scam. The committee wants the students to appear before it so that action can be taken against them. This was decided at the committee meeting held on Wednesday.

    GSHSEB authorities have stated that the names and addresses of the students can be declared only after the government gives consent. They have called another meeting next week.

    The chairman of the board, R R Varsani, said that the agenda for Wednesday’s meeting was to examine answersheets of the students, which the committee was not able to, and thus had to postpone action.

    Committee members want the students found guilty in the scam to be punished and barred from taking examinations conducted by the board for two to three years. While police is investigating the case, the board wants to take action at its level.

    The committee members have cited the example of action taken against three students in the proxy-writer scam that was exposed in 2008.
