Around one thousand candidates were cheated by a gang which conducted a fake examination for assuring jobs to aspiring teachers in Bengaluru on Sunday.

The examination that was held at a school in Jayanagar is suspected to be a work of a gang that runs a nationwide racket with several people posting similar experiences across the country online.

According to the police, the gang conducted an exam called S Radhakrishnan All India Teachers’ Examination and for that, they had posted advertisements online under a fake name, National Professional Testing Bureau that had an elaborate website. The test claimed that the candidates would get postings all across the country depending on their results.

Two batches of students, including 500 each batch, arrived for the examination centre at the MES School, but soon they realized that there was no exam at all. Each of the candidates paid Rs1,600 for the exam.

The postings were supposed to be at nationwide teaching centres across different cities to provide “quality but inexpensive educational facilities” to school students upto class 12. Candidates were also promised annual salaries ranging from Rs 4.15 lakh to Rs 8.2 lakh.

The gang of fraudsters had approached the school in Jayanagar to conduct the exam. The had paid a certain amount as deposit and a soft copy of question paper and OMR sheets were also given to the authorities.

When the candidates came to the school on Sunday, they found that nothing at all was organised. Soon they realized that they were cheated. The school authorities reported that they were not provided any formal information since they received the OMR sheet. The students approached the Jayanagar police as they were left with no other option.

The police have claimed that they have already started inquiry and they believe at least Rs 16 lakh have been taken away by the fraudsters.


The Logical Indian urges the police to conduct probe into the matter as early as possible and punish the fraudsters. We urge every citizens to beware and do their own research before appearing for exams that have lucrative offers without much effort from the examinee sides.
