While answer scripts are sent directly to the exam centres.

The convenor receives the question papers from Delhi and transports them to banks situated near the exam centres under the watch of security guards and school authorities. On the day of the exam, the question papers are dispatched to the centres.

Both CBSE and CISCE don't reveal the place of printing and how they distributes the question papers from Delhi to different parts of the country.
