Agra: The Uttar Pradesh education board has made a blunder by issuing an admit card to a student of an inter college in Agra with photo of Arjun Tendulkar, the son of cricketer Sachin Tendulkar, to appear for high school examination.

1.6 lakh students of Agra have appeared in their exam beginning today.

 

The UP Board issued a admit card in the name of Arjun Singh with a roll number 0025488. However, the passport size photo pasted on it was of Arjun Tendulkar.

Not just this, Arjun Tendulkar’s photo on the admit card was also attested and signed by private inter college (Ankur Inter college, Durga Nagar) administration.

The Times of India, in a report, said the blunder exposes the widespread presence of education mafia in Uttar Pradesh.

“You can paste even Hafiz Saeed photo and no one will cross check at examination center, as there are no photographs printed or pasted on attendance sheet of examination center. The entire system is managed,” the daily quoted a source as saying.
