The IAS, who turned around Bihar Board, gets extension as chairman

Anand Kishor, a 1996 batch , gets three-year extension as the chairman of Bihar School Examination Board ( BSEB ), which conducts examinations of secondary and senior secondary classes. Kishor will now remain chairman till September 25, 2026. He will also take charge of chief executive officer of Bihar Board of Open Schooling and Examination.

The turnaround Man

Kishor has been credited for turning around the BSEB, which was in complete mess when he first took over as chairman in September 2018. He is the first IAS office to be the chairman of examination board. Initially, he was appointed for a term of two years which had ended in 2020. Then he got a three-year extension which ended today (September 24, 2023).

Kishor now gets another three year extension for bringing reforms in the functioning of board. He turned around board which was notorious for paper leak, cheating, delayed examinations, irregular results and on top of it high level corruption.

He introduced computerisation and digitalisation at every level in the board to make it more transparent and efficient. So much so that, BSEB, which was known for delayed results, have be come one of the boards which declares Xth and intermediate results on record time. He has been credited for digitalisation of records of matric and intermediate examinations since 1983. He is personally monitoring the activities through Document Management System (DMS).

A ‘blue-eyed' bureaucrat of , Kishor implemented zero tolerance policy for corruption and weeded out paper leak and cheating mafias out of the system. Right from paper setting to examination and paper checking to result declaration – he has implemented transparency and automation to reduce any chance of irregularity.

Kishor gets PM award for his excellent work

Kishor was bestowed with the Prime Minister's award for excellence in public , 2020, in recognition of his “multiple innovation and extensive reforms in examination systems and processes in BSEB”.
