Candidates found to be involved in any malpractice, would face serious action starting from cancellation of the specific examination up to permanent debarment depending on the type of malpractice.
The DGE was receiving enquiries from institutions and organisations about the veracity of certificates produced by their employees. The department had a system for ensuring the authenticity of marks statements/certificates and if anyone was found to have produced bogus certificates or mark statements, they could face police action.
