I opine that:
the only bar on scribe taken by candidate should be that she/he should not be eligible to appear for exactly the same exam at the time she is so acting.
This condition should be sufficient to satisfy the paranoids who devise ever new criteria for scribe eligibility.
Besides, Imposition  of scribe should be guarded against, at the same time leaving scope open for candidate to request a competent scribe in advance, if candidate so wishes.
scope should also be left for eleventh hour changes, provided they satisfy the prescribed eligibility mentioned above.
Use of technology be facilitated, in conjunction with human aid, and not necessarily as the sole mode for taking the exam.

Most of you know that I have been working on the guidelines for examinations especially the issue of scribes for some time.
All of us have realised the need for standard guidelines in the country. After the maharashtra guidelines were issued many of you approached me and have been approaching me regularly for All India guidelines.  Therefore it is time to act.

I have based my work on the:
1. Guidelines in Maharashtra
2. Minutes of meeting held in2008
3. Judgement in Asif's case
4. University of Bombay's circular on psychology

 I need to know from each of you as to what you want in the new Rules. What you want to safe guard against,What you want the Examination authority to take care of and what will be the visually challenged's responsibility. Anything that I should take into account especially for any particular exam. Please ask for the moon we just might get it of course be practical. Think of all the variations and combinations and complications that someone somewhere may face.  Thats why I am still on this group.

I cannot take care of the idiot who denies the rules but I can ensure good rules on paper at least. So lets go for it. Please dont send me a list of  what happened in the past I cant rectify it but I can see that it does not happen again. So requesting for some input.
The new rules will apply to :
1. All recruiting exams
2. All college and school exams
3. All entrance exams
4. any other exam that I have forgotten

Looking forward to your inputs
