IMA urges health minister to reschedule NEET PG 2022

The Indian Medical Association (IMA) has requested Union Health Minister Mansukh Mandaviya to reschedule the NEET-PG examination, which is scheduled to be held on May 21.

The IMA in its letter to the Health Minister on Wednesday said, “The NEET-PG 2021 was held five months after the scheduled date in the month of September 2021. Then the counselling scheduled to begin from October 25, 2021, was also initiated (in January 2022) after a delay due to a pending decision on seat reservations and was further delayed owing to the Supreme Court ruling of March 31, 2022, which ordered cancellation and conduct of special round of counselling for the mop-up round.”

“As a result of the delayed counselling schedule, NEET PG 2022 was deferred from April 2022 to May 2022, so that the candidates could appear for the final stray vacancy round of NEET PG 2021 and can still have plenty of time for preparation and reappearance for the next NEET PG 2022 exam if they failed to secure a seat this year. However, the AIQ Counselling anticipated to be completed by the end of March 2022, is still in process and is uncertain if it will end by May 7. The several States will also be finishing the counselling around the middle of May 2022,” it said.

Many political leaders have also supported students’ demands to postpone the NEET-PG exams. Opposition party leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra urged Union Health Minister Mansukh Mandviya to consider the plea of medical students for postponement of the exams stating that the delay in NEET-PG counselling has caused a lot of distress to students.

As of now the Centre or the Health Ministry have not replied to the requests to postpone the NEET PG exams. However, the Supreme Court might hear a plea filed for postponing the exam on May 13.

NEET PG aspirants are demanding the authorities to postpone the exam stating that they did not get enough time to prepare for the exam. Students have stormed social media requesting the officials to delay the exam. Many students are also stagging protesting and demanding the same.
