The professional Examination Board (PEB) will introduce a new Intelligent Character Recognition (ICR) fool- proof mechanism from the next year whereby it would be possible to detect any kind of fraud on the part of students appearing in competitive exams.With the help of ICR, it would now be possible to store data of handwriting samples of the candidates along with their photographs, which would help the PEB in detecting any kind of fraud. The ICR technique is an updated version of the existing Optical Mark Reader (OMR) system, which reads pencil marks of examinees while evaluating answers that are ticked by examinees darkening circles with pencils on special OMR sheets. The special OMR/ICR will be distributed in all the examination centers and exams conducted by the PEB, wherein a candidate will also be able to use pens also for answering questions. 

A student would be minutely scrutinized right from the time of his filling application forms till he approaches an educational institution to take admission. Prof. US Vijayvargiya, Controller of Examination, PEB said that there was a lot of scope for imposters, as they would remove the photographs of the original candidate and paste their own photograph and appear for the exam. However, under this system, both the photograph as well as the signature of the candidates would be scanned on the test admit card and then would be sent to them." A record of handwriting samples and photographs of all the candidates would be made available at all the examination centers.
