The examination last year earned a lot of attention because of the paper leak in TS-EAMCET 2016. This called up a probe by the Crime Investigating Department. Though the investigation is still on and the final report is to be submitted, the initial investigation points out 50 primary accused involved in the entire conspiracy. On January 2, 2017, one of the accused in the case while in the custody of CID complained of chest pain and later died.
The Institution has added special arrangements and had ordered the exams centers to install CCTV Camera To eliminate any chances of the paper leak and malpractices. However, the exam centers seems to be sluggish in this aspect as till 1 January which was the deadline for the same, only 55 percent of the exam centers were found CCTV equipped.
