With a motive to prevent the spreading of misinformation, the Central Board Of Secondary Education (CBSE) has released a list of 30 users on X (formerly Twitter) who are misusing the name and logo of CBSE to spread invalid news.
CBSE emphasised that their real and only account on X is “cbseindia29” where authorised information is given to the public. It has also assured the people that relevant action is being taken against these fake accounts.
“It has come to the notice of the Central Board Of Secondary Education (CBSE) that the following handles have been found using the name and/or logo of CBSE to mislead the general public on X(formerly twitter),” said the board.
Given below is the list of fake Twitter handles posing as CBSE
In its current post on X, it also mentioned “CBSE will not be responsible hereinafter for any information given by any other source using the name and logo of CBSE in any of the styles on social media platforms and accessed by the public.”
The alert by CBSE about fake social media accounts highlights how one should be while using internet resources, especially during the upcoming board examinations of classes 10th and 12th.
Furthermore, the board has also announced that it will not be awarding any overall divisions, distinctions or aggregates to students this year.
