CBSE releases list of 30 fake X handles

The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has taken a proactive step to address the proliferation of fake social media handles misusing its name and logo on X (formerly Twitter).

With the aim to prevent misinformation, CBSE has released a list of nearly 30 X handles that impersonate the Board and emphasised that its only official account on X was '@cbseindia29'.

"It has come to notice of Central Board of Secondary Education that 30 handles have been found to be using the na,me and/or logo of CBSE, witha view to mislead the general public on X (formely Twitter)," the board said in its latest notification.

CBSE has reassured the public that appropriate actions are being taken against these fraudulent social media handles. In an official notice, the Board cautioned the public to follow only the verified and authentic handle '@cbseindia29' for accurate information related to CBSE.

CBSE's alert regarding fake social media handles underscores the importance of vigilance in navigating online platforms, especially considering the upcoming board exams for Class 10 and 12, scheduled to commence on February 1.
