BHOPAL: Knee-deep in trouble over the multi-crore Vyapam scam, the Madhya Pradhesh government has finally decided to digitise the official procedures of the Professional Examination Board in a bid to make it transparent.
A separate mobile App has been launched for Vyapam. “The entire functioning of Vyapam (Vyavsayik Pariksha Mandal) will be made digital,” state Technical and Higher Education Minister Umashankar Gupta said during the launch of the App.
The App has been developed under the ‘Digital India’ programme, the minister said in the presence of Vyapam Chairman Madan Mohan Upadhyay.
The App will help the candidates to download the application forms, dates of various exams, question-answer banks, and even admit cards.
The admission test of PAHUT (Pre-Ayurvedic, Homoeopathy and Unani Test) will be conducted using this technique on August 30, 2015.
It will be the first online test of Vyapam.
As compared to last year, the Board is conducting twice the number of exams (31) this year.
Admissions will be made through Vyapam in 2015 for over 95,250 seats in various courses and recruitments will be made to 60,700 government vacancies in the state.
