Odisha govt to conduct Teacher Eligibility Test online

Bhubaneswar: The state government has decided to conduct the Odisha Teacher Eligibility Test (OTET) online.

The move came after OTET question paper leak that sparked a row in Odisha.

The decision was taken at a high-level meeting chaired by the School and Mass Education Minister Badrinarayan Patra.

Notably, the OTET exam was cancelled by the Board of Secondary Education (BSE) on January 16 after the question paper got leaked. The photos of the question paper went viral on social media during the first sitting of the OTET examination.

The BSE has filed a complaint in this regard at the Mangalabag police station in Cuttack on January 18.
