Interviews have served as tools to enforce discrimination. The recent issue of an AIIMS Student being awarded 1/20 Marks in interview raises questions about the procedure. PGIMER, Chandigarh, JIPMER, Pondicherry have done away with interview. NIMHANS has partially removed it. NEET ensures direct admission based on merit. Now why should AIIMS, continue to have interviews ?

Interviews have served as a tool to enforce discipline and restrict the rights of residents. Those who have sided with the administration to the detriment of their own health and that of fellow residents have been favoured by the administration and respective departments for admission to various courses.
