when i studied for JEE i found only one example where

induced electric field in a coil on it perimeter is tangent to the surface and in that case when we complete one circle of work its work done is not zero because of course E.dx is positive since dx is in same direction as E

but work done in a circle should be zero as definition of conservative force.

therefore contradiction there.
