Higher and technical education minister Uday Samant announced this on Saturday, as he spoke to the media. A fact-finding committee will be formed by the department to investigate the technical issues during the online examinations, and based on the committee's report, appropriate action will be taken against the service provider company.
"We are appointing a fact-finding committee, which will consist of two state government officials from director level and one technology expert.
