All India Institute of Medical Sciences : AIIMS Entrance Examinations

As per Sir Joseph Bhore, the chairperson of the health survey and development committee in 1946, there was recommendation for the establishment of a national medical centre in India. The centre would concentrate wholly on fulfilling the needs of the healthcare division. The commissions set up on the mutual exchange of words among Nehru, Amrit Kaur and the recommendations of the Bhore Committee managed to create a proposal which got a welcome note from the government of New Zealand.  With worth amount from New Zealand under the Colombo Plan the foundation of All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) in 1952 was possible and was established in the year 1956. It is more of an autonomous institution through an Act of Parliament, to provide services in healthcare domain.
