in CBSE board rules for scribe are very linient. they dont compel neiter 
to have writer from different field or subject nor have any upper or 
lower percentage limits. a very simple rule which is to be followed is 
that writer should be in a standard less than the candidate is appearing 
for exam. candidates are permited to bring there own writers. a minor 
loophole exist there that scribe should not be in blood relation with 
candidate, implying sibling of vi candidate could not be writer of the 
candidate. this in my view is not in any way problematic issue as there 
are many people around us who fulfill above norms.
why not to have such flexible rules for all exams which are simple to be 
abide with?

a troublesome step for many as technology has not maneuvered all around 
india. i too hold antagonistic views for making all exams computer based 
for vi candidates.
but, it is really easy to make use of screen readers in those exams 
which are already computer based  thereby reducing dependability on 
scribe. what's the harm in doing so when our vi folks will become
