Karnataka Government Proposes 10 Crore Penalties to Combat Exam Offences

Published on

In a bid to tackle the prevalence of unfair practices in public examinations, the Karnataka government has introduced a bill in the Assembly suggesting stringent measures, including imprisonment up to 10 years and fines up to Rs 10 crore.

The bill, titled Karnataka Public Examination (Measures for Prevention of Corruption and Unfair Means in Recruitment) Bill, 2023, also incorporates provisions for property confiscation.

The bill aims to effectively address the issues of question paper leaks and the use of unfair means in public examinations for recruitment to various government posts, encompassing autonomous bodies, authorities, boards, or corporations.

Positioned as a deterrent, the proposed law not only targets the growing trend of unfair practices but also serves as a warning to examinees and criminal orchestrators involved in such activities. The bill outlines the establishment of a designated court for the trial of these offences, ensuring a streamlined legal process without incurring additional expenses.

In a parallel move, the Karnataka government has also presented the Karnataka Goods and Services Tax (Second Amendment) Bill, 2023, as a replacement for an ordinance, signaling a shift in the taxation of online games, horse racing, and casinos with a 28 per cent GST.
