“Issue notice only with respect to petitioners 1 and 2 who are in their seventh and eighth month of pregnancy respectively,” the court said, according to Live Law. The court also instructed to list the matter on Thursday as the first item on board.

A bench of Justices UU Lalit, Ajay Rastogi and Vikram Nath heard the plea today.


Senior Advocate Kavin Gulati, appearing for the doctors said, “On 06.08.2021, they (National Board of Examination) said that the new candidates who had filled were allowed to chose the centres and not the ones who had filled the form and were eligible earlier.”

Stating travel difficulties amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, several NEET PG candidates, who were earlier allotted exam centres outside the state, have also requested NBE for changing the test centre.

As per the NEET PG 2021 latest news, the NBE is expected to soon release the NEET PG 2021 admit card at nbe.edu.in. The National Eligibility cum Entrance Test for Postgraduate will be on the revised exam date, September 11, 2021.

A total of 1,75,063 candidates have registered for the postgraduate medical entrance examination this year. NBE conducts NEET PG exam for granting admission to 12,690 Master of Surgery (MS), 24,306 Doctor of Medicine (MD), and 922 PG Diploma seats.
