The All India Institute of Medical Sciences here has proposed doing away with interviews at all stages of the PhD selection process and make it based on written examination, a step aimed at bringing greater transparency. For enabling high-impact research at the institute, the administration has further proposed to start 40-50 PhD Institute fellowship at par with Prime Minister's Research Fellows (PMRF) scheme and to apportion a budget of Rs 200 crore for the same, subject to necessary approvals from statutory committees of the AIIMS and the Government of India.  These are a part of reforms suggested by the AIIMS administration on Tuesday for the selection process for PhD and award of Institute Fellowship. During AIIMS director Dr M Srinivas' interaction with the faculty, PhD students and scientists, it has been strongly suggested that there is an emergent requirement for reforming the selection process for PhD and award of Institute Fellowship at AIIMS New Delhi, an office memorandum issued on Tuesday said.
