    As usual. They have found others to pile the blame on. What can you expect when buffoons handle education.

    If three Data Entry Operators can spoil whole process, how can we rely on these results? Even in a normal org. there are few steps to avoid mistakes, which could happen in Data Entry process. Why Examination Dept. can't adopt these simple steps to avoid BIG mistakes...

    Or dear, Isn't there any validation to detect duplicate entries? It is hard to accept this. It should give 'unique index violation' exception.

    even with the oil fiasco it was the same. First denial then slowly when pressure built up they confessed and found a scapegoat.
