Amid accusations of paper leak, Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot on Monday announced the cancellation of Level-2 exam of Rajasthan Eligibility Examination for Teachers-2021 (REET).

The decision was taken in the state cabinet meeting chaired by Gehlot.

The chief minister also said that the exam will now be re-conducted for 62,000 posts instead of 32,000 posts. First, an eligibility examination will be conducted and then a final examination will be held, he said.

REET level-2 exam is conducted for the selection of teachers to teach students of Classes 6 to 8.

But, the decision was taken due to the protest "gimmicks" of the BJP to malign the state government, he said.

The chief minister also said that the state government will enact a law with strict measures to stop exam paper leaks and ensure that exams are conducted in a fair and transparent manner.

He said that it was not the first instance of paper leak and such incidents have taken place in other states like Uttar Pradesh, Himachal Pradesh, Haryana, Uttarakhand, Maharashtra, Himachal Pradesh in recent years and it should be looked into why such cheating gangs have been formed.
