A bench comprising Chief Justice K G Balakrishnan and Justice P Sathasivam granted the permission to CBSE to implement the scheme from the coming academic session.

The apex court granted the permission when counsel for CBSE pleaded that the single stage AIPMT scheme, which was in vogue till 2004, has to be changed to two stage revised scheme comprising of preliminary objective test and final subjective test as it will save the financial burden on CBSE as lesser manpower will be required for conducting the entrance test.
