Has UPSC IAS Paper Ever Been Leaked?

In 1992, there was an instance when the UPSC received complaints of paper being leaked at a centre in Allahabad (Prayagraj). The matter was discussed in Parliament and enquiry committee was set up.

On 17 June 1992, the General Studies paper started at 2:30 pm and was to be conducted till 4:30 pm. After the paper started, one of the invigilators was found photocopying the paper. He was photocopying Set C and Set D. The matter was reported to the police and the official was arrested in no time. The original and photocopied booklets were seized by the police by 3:00 pm.

Enquiry was conducted immediately by UPSC. An officer was sent to conduct an enquiry and no instance confirming the leakage of paper was found by UPSC. Hence the paper was not cancelled. However, a CBI inquiry was also ordered to be conducted on the same.

So, the paper was not leaked. The Member of Parliaments replied that every year UPSC receives complaints of paper leaks as the students are not allowed to carry out their papers and need to submit the answer sheets along with the papers. However many students carry papers with them by tearing off two-three sheets from the paper. This practice is done by many to build question banks but is not any proof of the paper leak.

Why UPSC Paper does not get leaked?

UPSC follows a very smart process of sending the exam papers to every exam centre across the country. The examination papers are sent in sealed form to the test centres only one hour before the commencement of the examination. They are sent under security and SDM of the district is responsible for the successful delivery of the paper. The sheets are taken out half an hour before the exam. The seal is opened in front of the candidates by the invigilators.
