The committee has been asked to revisit all aspects related to the security checks built into the system for ensuring that the Question papers reach the examinees without tampering and also to examine and assess all areas of potential weakness in the present system of transporting question papers from the printing presses to the examinees.

The committee will also suggest ways in which the system can be made more secure with the use of technology and minimization of human intervention.

Mr. Swarup tweeted that committee consists of experts, under chairmanship of V S Oberoi, ex-Secretary, Ministry of Human Resources Development.
 
The government move comes after it has decided to conduct re-exam for class 12 economics Paper on April 25, 2018, amid huge anger over the question papers being leaked.

Rajput, India representative on the executive board of the UNESCO former director, NCERT and former Chairman NCTE, Prof. Vasudha Kamat, Independent Director, IRCON & Former VC, SNDT Women's University  and Prof. Krishna Mohan Tripathy, Ex-Director of Education, UP And Chairman Board of High School & Intermediate Education, UP.

Apart from this a senior representative of director general, NIC and Joint Secretary of School Education department of HRD ministry will be also included in the committee.

In another development on Tuesday, HRD ministry and CBSE decided to not to conduct class 10 maths re-exam, after a "thorough analysis and evaluation of the answer sheets" showed no specific trend that the leak had impacted the exam outcome, tweeted Union Education Secretary Anil Swarup.

For the class 10 math exam, the government had said it would only be held in Delhi and Haryana if the police investigation points to a "large-scale leak".

Menwhile, Union Minister of State for Human Resource Development Satyapal Singh said today the central government is working to prepare a mechanism that will ensure that no question paper ever takes place in the future.

"We are working to prepare such a mechanism that no question paper leak can ever take place in future," Singh said in Sonipat on Tuesday.
