The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has sent a warning on false information and rumors regarding the impending Class 10 and 12 board exams. The dates of the Class 10 and 12 CBSE annual board exams are set for February 15–April 2.
Based on the official announcement, it has been noticed previously that some dishonest individuals attempt to spread false information about exam paper leaks on various social media platforms such as YouTube, Facebook, X, Telegram, and others, by claiming to possess access to the question papers.
CBSE further stated that if a student is discovered to be disseminating false information, it will take legal action against them under the UNFAIR MEANS regulations and certain IPC sections. Parents are also asked to advise their children not to participate in any activity that could interfere with the smooth running of the upcoming board exams, such as believing such rumors.

In addition, dishonest people spread bogus links to sample papers, claiming that the questions in those papers will be similar to those in the sample papers. They also spread bogus images and videos of question papers, claiming to have access to those that may be provided in exchange for money.
