Cheating in Exams Like Pandemic, Can Ruin Society: Delhi HC
The Delhi High Court, while dismissing a petition filed by Delhi University student allegedly caught cheating during the examination, observed that "copying and cheating" in examinations is like a "pandemic which can ruin society and the educational system of any country".
"Copying and cheating in examinations is like the plague. It is a pandemic which can ruin society and the educational system of any country. If the same is left unchecked or if leniency is shown, the same can have a deleterious effect. For any country's progress, the integrity of the educational system has to be infallible," observed a single-judge bench of Justice Pratibha M. Singh.
