The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has decided to allow medical aspirants to appear for AIPMT in religious or customary dresses, with a condition that such candidates will have to reach an hour before the examination for ‘proper frisking’.

“Candidates coming in customary or religious dresses should report at the centre latest by 8:30 am for proper frisking,” CBSE announced in a notification released on April 28, 2016.


The decision comes after the Kerala High Court, following a petition by a candidate, declared that women were protected under fundamental rights to dress according to their religious beliefs.


Last year, CBSE had introduced a strict dress code, including the ban on hijab after AIPMT was cancelled and re-conducted amid reports of cheating with the use of electronic devices and microphones stitched to candidate’s clothes.


As in last year, this year, too, CBSE has advised candidates to wear light clothes, half sleeves without big buttons and also sandal or slippers instead of shoes. The previous year’s ban on accessories like rings, brooches, hair pins and watches is intact. Read the full story here…
