The deputy controllers or principals of the evaluation centers will train the appointed examiners and deputy head examiners for evaluation of answer sheets before the commencement of evaluation at their respective evaluation centres.

Along with this, DIET Principal (District Institute of Education and Training) of each district has been appointed as supervisor to monitor all the evaluation centers located in each district.
Along with this, concrete arrangements have been made for the security of the evaluation centers. Section 144 has been imposed within a radius of 100 meters around the evaluation centres.
