The National Medical Commission (NMC) has directed all medical colleges to register and obtain All India Survey on Higher Education (AISHE) code which will help deserving medical students receive scholarships under various schemes launched by the central government and state governments.

The list of institutions registered in the AISHE is widely used by the central ministries and state governments for checking genuineness of student applications in different schemes. A wide use of this is done in the national Scholarships Portal, where online application and processing of scholarships of different ministries are done, after which scholarships are sent through direct bank transfer (DBT) mode to the students after proper online verification, de-duplication, etc.
“In order to extend the entitlements to the eligible and deserving students, inclusion of all the institutions in the AISHE is necessary. However, it has been observed that some of the medical colleges recognized with the NMC are not in the AISHE list. Hence, all medical colleges are requested to mandatorily register and get the AISHE code at the earliest. The next round of application from the student in the National Scholarship Portal might be starting shortly. Therefore, an early compliance by these institutions will help the entitled students avail benefits extended by the government,” stated Rajeev Verma, undersecretary, Undergraduate Medical Education Board of NMC.
The department of higher education had launched AISHE in 2011 under the Central Sector Scheme of Higher Education Statistics and Public Information Systems (HESPIS). AISHE is a web-based annual survey run through a dedicated web-portal. The purpose o the survey is to create a robust database of the educational institutions providing higher education in India. The coverage of AISHE includes all tertiary level educational institutions, including those engaged in imparting medical and nursing education. All recognized institutions apply online for registering in AISHE through this portal, after which they provide regular data annually.
