notes or paper whatever, except the correct question paper.
b) Copying from the other students or giving opportunity to other students to copy from one’s own answer paper or
communicating dishonestly with other students in the examination room.
c) Giving or obtaining or attempting to give or obtain unfair assistance from other students.
A student detected of using unfair means would be dealt with in the following manner.
First time : ‘0’ in the particular paper / subject.
Second time : ‘0’ in all the papers / subjects
