BUNER: The district government has imposed a two-month ban on sale of pocket guides in an attempt to curb use of unfair means during forthcoming Secondary School Certificate examinations.

The district government has banned sale of the guides as well as making of micro photo copies of lessons under Section 144, said a notification issued here from deputy commissioner office on Thursday.

The notification warned book sellers and photo copiers of strict action if found guilty of violation of the ban. Besides, CCTV cameras would also be installed at examination halls throughout the district to keep a check on students, it said.  It merits a mention here that SCC examinations are scheduled to begin on March 20.
