In a significant decision, a high-level committee headed by a former Punjab and Haryana High Court Judge, Justice G.R. Majithia, has allowed the Association of Unaided Sikh Minority Medical and Dental Institutes (AUSMMDI) in Punjab to hold its own common entrance test (CET). This permission has been granted only for this academic year.

The committee has been set up by the Punjab Government to oversee the entrance test conducted by the Association of Private Professional Colleges. Its members are Dr R.N. Pathak, Vice-Chancellor of Panjab University; Dr S.K. Sharma, former Director of the PGI, Chandigarh; and Dr J.S. Gujral, Vice-Chancellor of Baba Farid Medical University. Mr Satish Chandra, IAS, Secretary, Medical Education and Research, is its Member-Secretary.

The committee said the association would hold its test as per its guidelines and directions for transparent, fair, objective and merit-based entrance examination. The committee also issued notice to the state. It appointed Mr Anupam Gupta, Mr B.M. Singh and Mr K.C. Mahajan, advocates, as amicus curie to assist it.
