PG Medical Admissions: AIIMS notifies on postponement of INI CET 2021 exam
New Delhi: Through a recent notice, the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) has informed about the postponement of INI-CET for admission to PG medical courses of INIs for the July 2021 session.
"Considering that many of the candidates intending to appear in the exam are in covid duty and remote areas, we are of the opinion that June 16 date is arbitrary. We direct the exam to be postponed by one month, Needless to say exam can be held anytime after the expiry of one month," the Bench of Justices Indira Banerjee and MR Shah ordered.
The AIIMS had further been directed to give an appropriate date for the exam being conducted for admission to postgraduate courses (MD, MS, MDS, DM and MCH courses) in leading Government Medical Institutes in the Country including AIIMS, JIPMER, and NIMHANS. More than 80,000 candidates are set to appear for the examination for around 800 seats.
The Supreme Court was hearing the petitions- one filed by a group of 23 MBBS doctors and another filed by Indian Medical Association, Medical Student Network (Chhattisgarh Chapter) along with 35 serving doctors currently serving in Covid duties challenging the conduct of the INI CET examination on 16th June 2021 and seeking directions for its postponement.
