The sponsorship certificate (Annexure-V) must be submitted by the candidate as a scanned document. 


Applicants are allowed to upload a scanned copy of the sponsorship certificate (.jpg / pdf) using their user id and password on or before 12.05.2023 (Friday) 1 PM in the database if they are unable to upload the sponsorship certificate at the time of submission of the online application. Such applicants’ applications will be immediately rejected if the database for their scanned copies is not updated, and no hall ticket will be prepared or granted. 


The supported certificate must state that the following is true: 

  1. That the candidate is a permanent or regular employee of the deputing/sponsoring Authority and should have been working for at least the last three years (on or before June 30 2023). 
  2. The candidate would be properly engaged by the deputing/sponsoring Authority to work for at least five years in the speciality in which they received training at JIPMER, Puducherry, after completing their training there. 
  3. And that throughout the duration of their course, JIPMER Puducherry will not be responsible for paying any financial obligations in the form of emoluments, stipends, or other compensation; this will be the sponsoring Authority’s duty. 
  4. Sponsorship of candidates holding tenure appointments (like house job, Junior or Senior Residency, adhoc or contract or honorary appointment against a leave vacancy) shall NOT be accepted. Sponsorship of any candidate by private hospitals, institutes or nursing homes is not accepted. The sponsoring Institute should not nominate more than one candidate for each speciality specified in the distribution of seats in the Discipline. (Page No: 6 & 7). 


Only the following will be approved as candidate sponsors or deputies: 


  1. Departments or institutions of the federal or state governments 
  2. Central or State Government Autonomous Bodies 
  3. Institutions of higher learning in the public sector that are accredited by the MCI. When a candidate is sponsored or deputed by a medical college that is affiliated with a university and is approved by the National Medical Commission. Only a sponsorship or deputation certificate signed by the Principal of the relevant medical college is acceptable.


Sponsored/Deputed candidates must take the common entrance examination and pass in order to be selected. Candidates must make their own arrangements for lodging during the duration of their course if they are accepted for admission to any JIPMER course.

Exam specifics: The following ten Indian cities are being considered as potential locations for the exams: 


S. No.  Exam City  S. No.  Exam City 


Only three exam cities are available to applicants. Exam City allocation will follow the applicant’s order of preference during online registration in a first-come, first-served fashion. MUMBAI 


Under no circumstances will the candidate’s request for a change of centre be taken into consideration. The preferred exam city is simply a guide and is subject to change. The final say on the central allotment belongs to JIPMER. Let’s say a city hosting an exam is cancelled because not enough candidates are present there to meet the requirement. In that situation, JIPMER will reassign candidates who selected that city to any other centre or city that is open. Candidates will be required to abide by it. 


Any exam city may be dropped at any time due to unforeseeable events. With proper notification via the website or text message, JIPMER is able to assign a new exam city all at once.
