As a student, we go through many examinations for which the examination centre is mostly out of our city, sometimes in other states (e.g Indian Railway Examinations), so we can't think of going there without mobile phones.

Mobile Phone helps us in many ways, like Google Maps (to make sure we are moving in the right direction to the examination centre) or to contact someone in case of emergency.

One thing for sure if we are to go to another city or state, we can't go without a Mobile phone. In short, a Mobile phone ensures our safety and timely reach to the examination centre

But the safe-keeping of mobile phones at the examination centre is a big deal, only a few examination centres seem to care for it (and we don't know that in advance that whether there will be a facility of safe-keeping of mobile phones or not), rest do not account for any loss and as a good Mobile phone costs at least Rs. 10,000, so in case there is no proper arrangement to submit mobile phones for the safe-keeping, we usually put it outside the examination centre in our bags, and sometimes it ends up as our Mobile phone has been theft or lost and to buy it again is not so easy for middle-class students. Even if we keep financial loss aside, we would end up losing valuable data or information stored on the mobile phone.

Being a student myself, who have to go to several cities or states for examination purpose, I kinda face such situations more often and I believe every one of us faces such situations.

Now, this problem can be solved if examination centres would provide a facility where we can submit our cellphones for the safe-keepings (like some examination centres do) so that theft or loss of mobile phones can be prevented.

Hence, I appeal to all the students to join hands and raise this problem to get a proper facility of safe-keeping of cellphones at the examination centres. Thanks.
