PEDDAPALLI: In its efforts to ensure that no incidents of mass copying or cheating occur during the conduct of written examination for the post of Fitters in the Singareni Collieries Company Limited, the management will use walk-through metal detectors to frisk the candidates at the examination centres.

The Singareni had issued an employment notification for the recruitment of 128 Fitter posts and a written test for the examination would be conducted on August 8 (Sunday) at Kothagudem. A total of 2,681 candidates would appear for examination in five centres viz Singareni women’s degree college and junior college, high school, St Mary’s school and Abdul Kalam engineering college in Kothagudem town.

At all the five examination centres, the Singareni would be installing walk-through metal detectors to check the use of unfair practices through electronic devices by the candidates. The walk-through metal detectors would completely scan the candidates before entering the centre for any metal objects in their body, said General Manager (security) Kumar Reddy. He said that such walk-through metal detectors are used at the airports to scan the passengers.

Director (Personnel and Finance) N Balaram on Friday inspected the walk-through metal detectors which were secured by Singareni at a cost of Rs 20 lakhs. He said that the recruitment would be conducted based on written test. They were leaving no stone unturned to ensure total transparency and conduct examinations smoothly without giving any chance for copying etc. He said that the results would be declared on the performance of written examination and merit and there was no scope for lobbying.
