Madhya Pradesh – Around 300 students who adopted unfair malpractices including impersonation for clearing their Pre-Medical Test (PMT) exams between 2006-2012 will be receiving notices from various Government Medical Colleges across the state.
The Directorate of Medical Education (DME) has asked the Deans of the government medical colleges to send the notices. Total 316 students from 6 government medical colleges will be served notices, said the sources from DME. Once the notices are served, the students will be given a chance to clarify and give their version on the charges levied against them.
It is also reported that FIRs have already been registered against 284 students and around 200 among them are placed under suspension. At Gandhi Medical College around 25 students have been issued notices and are kept under suspension, but were allowed by the High Court to appear for their examinations this year.
Pre-Medical Test (PMT) is conducted every year across the country for admissions into MBBS and BDS courses. Due to intense competition many students resort to such malpractices, which has to be stopped and strict measures are to be considered for restraining such activities in future.
