Fact 3: DMAT Scam is a Scam of Rs. 10K Crore
According to the reports, these candidates paid anything between Rs. 15 Lakh to RS. 1 Crore to get their seats confirmed in various courses including MBBS, BDS – Bachelor of Dental Surgery and other PG courses. Thus, till now, nearly Rs.10,000 crore is believed to be involved in this racket.
Fact 4: The Modus Operandi of DMAT Scam Was/Is Same as that of Vyapam Scam confirms Yogesh Uprit, an Accused in the Vyapam Scam
After Yogesh Uprit former director of MPPEB was arrested, he made a statement that the modus operandi used for DMAT was same as that of Vyapam. The candidates who paid the money were asked to leave the OMR sheets blank which was later filled with accurate answers by the scammers.
Fact 5: APDMC postponed the exam of July 12 to further date after MP HC Issued Strict Restrictions to Restrain Misconducts
The date of DMAT 2015 was June 21. However, Paras Saklecha, a former HC legislator moved to HC after getting information and reports that things are still the same even after detailed investigations into the Vyapam scam. Post this petition; the examination body APDMC – The Association for Private Medical and Dental Colleges cancelled the exam and postponed it to July 12.
Next, the HC asked APDMC to install scanners at the centres of examination, making it very clear that the scanned copies of the OMR sheets would be kept with several authorities to match with the Original sheets before announcing the results. Post this verdict, the APDMC further cancelled the July 12 exam three days before the day to an undisclosed date. According to the petitioner, the association is trying to find a way out.
