Two of the candidates appearing for the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) post-doctoral super specialty courses entrance test have reportedly filed a case at the Central Administrative Tribunal (CAT) alleging serious irregularities in the online model of the examination.
An official complaint has also been filed with the Dean of AIIMS, stating that candidates appearing for the entrance test carried mobile phones and there were no firewalls to prevent candidates from accessing the internet. The candidates have also filed a police complaint in this regard.
AIIMS officials, however, have denied any irregularities in the examination. “We categorically deny any use of unfair means. We have reviewed the situation from all angles and if we had suspected any such misconduct, the results would not have been declared,” Dr Y K Gupta, spokesperson, AIIMS, has said.
AIIMS declared the results of the entrance test to 15 of its 19 post-doctoral courses on Wednesday. The dates for re-examination for paediatric surgery, neurosurgery, cardiology and urology, where candidates could not complete their exam due to the server crash, are likely to be announced in a couple of days.
