Malpractices and preventive measures adopted:
COMED-K recognizes that the prime object of the medical profession is to render service to
humanity and the Examination malpractice is a social evil that can damage society to the extent of
possibly leading to a failed state. It decreases job efficiency leading to serious implications on the
general quality and standard of this noble profession. Imagine the havoc of a half backed medical
doctor could wreck on human lives. We believe that there is a chain effect of examination
malpractices on the educational system and the society as a whole.Notified on 08/02/2012
