Exclusive: Online medical entrance test awaits apex court nod
In a significant move, the National Board of Examination (NBE) has approached the Supreme Court seeking permission to hold online All India Post Graduate Medical Entrance test (AIPGME) for filling up the 50 per cent quota seats.

The Supreme Court will hear the NBE's plea on October 21.
If the apex court grants permission to the NBE, which has got the nod from the Health Ministry, around one lakh medical seat aspirants stand to benefit from the measure. Till now, the AIPGME tests were being conducted by the All India Institute of Medical Sciences.

The Supreme Court will hear the NBE's plea on October 21.

The move assumes significance as the SC on July 18 had quashed the National Entrance Eligibility Test (NEET) from the academic year 2014. A three-member SC bench had set aside a Medical Council of India notification mandating NEET both for under and postgraduate medical and dental courses in government and private institutions. The Health Ministry, however, had sought review of the apex judgment.

"It has become necessary for the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare to revive the previous regime for filling the PG medical seats for the year 2014 and onwards by holding All India Entrance Examination for Post-Graduate Courses for filling the 50 per cwnt All India Quota Seats," NBE Additional Director Anurag Agarwal said in the petition.

The NBE, which conducted the last year's NEET exam, proposes to conduct the post graduate medical entrance exams between November 23 and December 6, 2013.
