Vyapam is likely to cancel the candidature of 62 more students who appeared in PMT between 2008 and 2011. An order in this regard will be issued by Vyapam soon, said joint coordinator of Madhya Pradesh Professional Examination Board (MPPEB) Alok Nigam.

Besides, the candidature of 25 persons who appeared in the transport constable recruitment test 2012 is also likely to be cancelled, following an internal inquiry being carried out by Vyapam authorities to identify candidates who might have used unfair means to crack various examinations conducted by the board in the past few years.

Candidatures of more than 700 PMT candidates have been cancelled by Vyapam till date. Many of them were pursuing MBBS in various medical colleges of the state. The most candidature cancellations were in 2012.

“Our officials are also conducting internal investigation of the scam. Those candidates who are under scanner for using unfair means during the entrance exams between 2008 and 2011 have been shortlisted by our investigation team. We will be releasing an official order to cancel the candidature of all these candidates,” said Nigam.

Nigam said Vyapam will also release a list of around 25 candidates who appeared in the RTO constable exam in the 2012 soon. Candidature of all these candidates will be also cancelled, he added.

Vyapam had earlier cancelled the candidature of several PMT candidates who appeared in PMT in 2012 and 2013. The cancellations were done on the basis of the information provided by the Special Task Force (STF) regarding such candidates who used unfair means during the entrance exams.
