A decision on the matter was taken at a meeting held to discuss the implementation of Pre Conception and Pre Natal Diagnostic Act (PC- PNDT) Act- 1994 at the state health directorate on Monday. In course of the meeting, a strategy was devised for CBET implementation in the state.
It was decided that the sonologists working in any government or private hospital or clinic and using an ultrasound machine to perform sonography of Abdomen-pelvic region of women should clear the CBET.
The examination would be taken at the Hemvati Nandan Bahuguna Medical Education University and the medical education department would be accountable for the entire process.
The registrar and controller examination of the university Vijay Juyal said that examination would be held in January 2019 and the result would be declared in a week upon completion of the examination.
The CBET would have two papers, a written test followed by a practical examination.

He further said that the university would issue notification for the examination later this month.
