New Delhi: The Central Administrative
Tribunal (CAT) has dismissed the plea of resident doctors of
AIIMS seeking scrapping of the online test conducted by the
premier institute for admission to super specialty courses of
different medical colleges.
The tribunal refused to order fresh examination saying
that the integrity of Controller of Examinations and Tata
Consultancy Services (TCS), the firm which conducted the
examinations, cannot be doubted.
"We are not convinced by the arguments that serious
malpractices as alleged took place at the venue. We do not
find any reason to doubt the integrity of the Controller of
Examinations and the Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) in the
light of the clarification given in the affidavit by AIIMS,"
the principal bench of CAT headed by Justice V K Bali said.
The tribunal also pointed out that AIIMS has already
inquired into the matter and decided to conduct re-examination
in few courses.
The petitioners, the Association of Resident Doctors
of AIIMS and two doctors, alleged malpractices and use of
unfair means in the examination for admission to Super
Speciality courses in DM/MCh, held on May 15, 2011 at Manav
Rachna University at Faridabad and sought a fresh examination
for all courses.
