All Bihar Government Exams to go Online: To ensure greater transparency in the system, the Nitish Kumar government wants to take the digital route in competitive exams. I think online exams would be the best way to conduct competitive exams and chances of irregularities are minimum.” says Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar addressing the Bihar entrepreneurship summit at the Sri Krishna Memorial Hall.
The push for conducting exams online came at a time when the state is witnessing a tussle between the bureaucracy and the political leadership over the arrest of Bihar Staff Selection Commission (BSSC) chairman Sudhir Kumar in the BSSC question leak case.

The CM’s statement was triggered by the demand raised by a participant, who had made an online application for his startup idea, was peeved at the failure of the industries department to inform applicants through return e-mail the status and reasons for non-selection of their proposal. Even if you form any body to conduct exams, out of 100 people there would be at least three to four persons who will resort to unfair means so it’s better to conduct online exams,” the chief minister added for good measure. He, however, did not provide any time frame or deadline for the move.
