The AAP government has decided to install jammers to stop cheating in examinations held for Delhi government jobs.

After the success of jammers used in a clerk-level exam on a pilot basis a couple of months ago, the Delhi Subordinate Services Selection Board (DSSSB) has decided to use the device in its critical exams, a government official told IANS. Set up in 1996, DSSSB conducts written tests and interviews for middle and lower level jobs in the state government and civic agencies.

A mobile phone jammer is an instrument used to stop cellular phones from receiving signals from base stations. The jammer effectively disables cellular phones. It transmits on the same radio frequencies as the cell phone, disrupting the communication between the phone and the cell-phone base station in the tower.

“Applications have been invited from various service providers of phone jammers,” an official said.

Another requirement is that jammers work with or without electric supply for the entire duration of the exams without any technical fault.

Various gadgets are available in the market that can be customized to fit into salwar-kameez sets, sports bras, jackets, shirts and regular buttons.

In May, the Supreme Court had directed the Centre to install phone jammers at exam centres to prevent paper leaks and other malpractices. The directive had come after alleged cheating in the All India Pre-Medical Test (AIPMT).Many aspirants had sim cards stitched to their shirts and had blue-tooth devices. Over 350 calls were made to the various exam centres.
