The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has warned centres for the class 10 and 12 board examinations about responding to frivolous emails and messages asking for copies of question papers for verification.

"It has been observed that some elements are writing to some of the examination centres and asking for copies of question papers for verification. Such elements are sending text messages in the name of CBSE Examination Controller using mail id firstname.lastname@example.org," an advisory issued by the board read.
"The board does not ask for any copies of administered question paper from its examination centres. Therefore, all centres located in the country and abroad are intimated that such emails are frivolous and need not be responded or attended to," it added.
