Regarding daily updation of the data in OECMS by Exam Centres

Ensuring Smooth Conduct of CBSE Examinations

The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE), an autonomous organization under the Ministry of Education, Government of India, has issued a crucial directive regarding the daily updation of data in the Online Examination Centre Management System (OECMS) by Examination Centres for the session 2023-24. This directive aims to streamline the examination process and ensure efficient management and supervision.

Importance of Timely Data Submission

It has come to the Board’s attention that several examination centres have not been diligently updating the examination data in the OECMS portal as required. The data submitted plays a vital role in monitoring the conduct of examinations on a daily basis and is essential for calculating payments to various functionaries through the Integrated Payment System (IPS).

Significance of OECMS Data for Examination Management

The OECMS data is not limited to absentee statements but serves as a comprehensive tool for managing and supervising examinations effectively. Failure to submit information for any given day can result in non-calculation of payments for that day through IPS. Therefore, daily submission of data, even in the absence of absences, is imperative for seamless payment processing.

Impact on Examination Functionaries

Inadequate or outdated OECMS data can hinder the payment process for examination functionaries involved in the CBSE Annual Examinations. With lakhs of functionaries engaged at various levels, accurate and up-to-date records are essential for efficient management, supervision, and timely payments through IPS.

Directive for Compliance

In light of these observations, all Centre Superintendents are reminded of their responsibility to ensure daily updation of data on the OECMS portal. For centres with external Centre Superintendents, arrangements must be made by the school to facilitate daily data submission.


The Controller of Examination, Dr. Sanyam Bhardwaj, emphasizes strict compliance with this directive to maintain the integrity and efficiency of the examination process. Regional Directors and Officers are urged to oversee that all examination centres adhere to the daily data updation requirement on the OECMS portal. By adhering to these guidelines, Examination Centres can contribute significantly to the smooth conduct of CBSE examinations and ensure timely payments to functionaries involved in this monumental educational endeavor.
