THE AUTHORITIES of the UP King George’s University of Dental Sciences played the name game to maintain secrecy during the Combined Pre Medical Test (CPMT). Vice-chancellor Prof CP Govila took help from faculty member Dr Manoj Govila to keep the education mafia and coaching institute owners at bay.

The trick was simple. Tickets for travel to different cities were booked in the name of Dr Govila. But, it was Dr Manoj Govila who actually travelled on official business. On the other hand, Prof CP Govila went to a different place where there was no official work to do.

Dr Manoj managed the entire outstation work in secrecy. And those who followed Prof CP Govila could not get any information about printing of question papers and other details for the exams.

“When the government entrusted me with the responsibility of conducting the CPMT, big players in the world of education and coaching business contacted me for help. My close associates told me that they would follow each step of mine and try to get the paper leaked. To avoid this problem, we hit upon this unique idea,” Prof CP Govila said.
