CPMT-2008 is being organised by the Lucknow University. Over 77,000 candidates are appearing in the test to be held at 149 centres in 19 cities across the state. Over 8,000 invigilators and 500 observers have been deputed for smooth conduct of examination.State government has issued to close PCOs, cyber cafes, photocopy machines, fax facilities in the 100 metres periphery of the centres during the examination period. Medical colleges have been asked to ensure 100 per cent attendance of MBBS students on Wednesday to fend off possibilities of racketeers trapping gullible students to make them appear as impostors for aspiring medicos. Thumb impressions of the candidates taken along with the application form will be matched with the impressions taken at the examination centre again to detect impersonation. organised seat-fixing rackets - that comprise students, coaching institutes, doctors and even teachers - have been busted in UP in the past as well.
