To avert such instances and to create a level-field for applicants, there are some security features built in the app like (1) there will be no back button to navigate to previous questions which means candidates will not be able to go back to previous question to change or mark the answer after getting any external help; (2) Every candidates will be provided with different sets of questions from huge database which reduces the probability of showing same question to different candidates at a time; (3) During exam Medhavi app uses face recognition and voice recognition to check for multiple face/voice during exam which may lead to disqualification of candidates.
For any exam related issues and/or queries candidates may contact them at their official email ids firstname.lastname@example.org & email@example.com which is attended very quickly and replied very swiftly, candidates can also call them on their phone number available on the official website www.medhavionline.org.
It is always advised to go through the official documents i.e. exam notifications, instructions and other notices to keep yourself updated and avoid any silly mistakes.
This initiative of HRDM is no doubt the best opportunity for meritorious candidates especially from the weaker section of the society purely based on merit and the ZERO FORMALITIES and 100% swift ONLINE process helps to avoid bureaucratic red-tapism and corruption at all level from application to distribution of scholarship.
