All India Institute of Medical Sciences

The honourable Supreme Court of India, stated that reserving 33 per cent seats for institutional candidates was in effect 100 per cent reservation for subjects, which was declared ultra vires the Constitution, and, hence, was struck down. [ Supreme Court Judgment regarding 33% reservation] The quota has been quashed by the Supreme Court as per its Judgment in the year 2001.

Caste Based Quota

AIIMS students joined in the nation-wide protests which took place in May, 2006. During the strike all the medical services were shut but parallel OPDs were started after the strike had been carried out for a long time. The strike continued till 31 May when the doctors called off their strike after the Supreme Court of India orders. [ [ Anti-quota stir continues as Arjun refuses rollback] ]

There is also a minuscule section of AIIMS students and doctors under the banner Progressive Medicos and scientists Forum (PMSF) who have traditionally taken a pro-reservation stance on the basis of social justice. [ [ Zee News - AIIMS chief accused of caste oppression ] ] Eventually the Supreme Court found sanctity in the voice raised by RDA-AIIMS and the NGO YouthForEquality [] through a PIL. The hon'ble SC stayed the OBC reservation bill on ground of being politically mooted and its judgment is awaited.
