AIIMS INI CET 2021 Exam Postponed by A Month: Supreme Court Orders AIIMS to Hold PG Medical Entrance Test


The Supreme Court on Friday finally released its orders regarding postponing AIIMS INI-CET exams 2021 at least for a month. The All-India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) had scheduled to conduct the INI CET exam on June 16 but after the new orders from SC, the exam has been postponed for one month.

The court also mentioned that the examination can take place any time after the end of one month. The court ordered deferral of the AIIMS INI-CET 2021 exam for admission in postgraduate medical courses in all AIIMS, JIPMER, PGIMER, and NIMHANS due to COVID reasons.


The Supreme Court termed the fixing of June 16 for conducting INI CET 2021 exam as arbitrary. This decision of the Supreme Court came into action because of the compilation of a number of petitions by doctors who were seeking postponement of the examination. Last week, there were twenty-six doctors from various states of the country who pleaded with the court for postponing the exams.

The doctors said that if the examination will take place on the previously mentioned date, that is, June 16, then fundamental rights will be violated under Articles 14 and 21 of the constitution.

A vacation bench of justices led by Indira Banerjee and M R Shah proposed a plea filed by doctors seeking admission in PG medical and also challenging the notice of fixing the date June 16 as the date of the INI CET 2021 exam.

The bench also said that due to the pandemic situation, doctors have been busy day and night as they are performing their duties to save patients and many have been placed far away for COVID duty reasons from the examination center, that is why the exam shall be postponed.
