By constructing an adjusted auxiliary vector ingeniously, we propose an adjusted empirical likelihood ratio function for the parametric components of varying coefficient partially linear models with censored data. It is shown that its limiting distribution is standard central chi-squared. Then the confidence intervals for the parametric components are constructed. A simulation study and a real data analysis are undertaken to assess the finite sample performance of the proposed method.
