Remove invigilator can also stop/ Resume/ terminate the exam process if there is valid proof of invalid candidate appearing for the exam.
This way proctor can verify/ validate concurrent number of exams from remote location. So for 1000+ exams distributed across multiple cities it becomes easier to manage it with limited invigilators.
