Hyderabad: With the result goof-up in the Telangana Inter exam, Globarena Technologies, the firm that provides technical assistance to TSBIE has come under the radar.

Ever since the Telangana Board of Intermediate Education (BIE) announced the results of intermediate first year and second year (11th and 12th standard) on April 18, blunders in valuation of papers, awarding marks and preparation of mark-sheets have come to light.

Senior officials of the TSBIE allege that Globarena has reported at least "22 mistakes" since it came on board.

They further allege that the board's secretary A Ashok was notified about it on December 17 and was asked to terminate the contract with the firm. Instead, without paying any heed, he asked the company to rectify the errors.

The officials went on to say that before Globarena, Centre for Good Governance along with another private firm was assigned the contract and wondered how Globarena came into the scene all of a sudden.

Meanwhile, the main opposition Congress party has demanded a probe by a sitting judge into the lapses by BIE. It blamed the government for the suicide of 18 students who took the extreme step as they failed in the examination.

The Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) also staged a protest. Police arrested the protestors who raised slogans and tried to barge into the BIE office.

A total of 9 lakh students had appeared in the intermediate exams held in February-March. The pass percentage in the first year was 60.5 while in the second year 64.8 per cent students passed the exam.
