Postpone INI-CET for at least 30 days, SC tells AIIMS | India News

Government Expands Rules Prohibiting Retired Officials From Publishing Confidential Information |  India News

NEW DELHI: The Supreme Court Friday ordered a minimum 30-day postponement of the highly competitive INICET, scheduled for June 18, in which around 72,000 MBBS passes had to compete for around 800 MD positions at all branches of All Indian Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) and other medical institutes of national importance.
In ordering AIIMS to postpone the Common Entrance Test of the Institute of National Importance (INI-CET), a bank of judges Indira Banerjee and MR Shah cited Monday’s announcement from the PMO on the four-month postponement of the NEET-PG exam for admission to PG courses at government medical colleges. It was done to increase the availability of medical personnel to combat the pandemic. The bank said that if the government saw fit to postpone the NEET-PG exam for four months, AIIMS ‘decision to hold INI-CET June 18 seemed arbitrary.
