NEW DELHI: Though the resumption of NEET PG Counselling 2021 came as a relief for medical aspirants, the clash with NEET PG 2022 has now left them miffed. After a long delay, the Medical Counselling Commission (MCC) announced the NEET PG Counselling 2021 registration schedule following the Supreme Court’s nod to start counselling with the existing 10% EWS, 27% OBC reservation criteria. However, the National Board of Examinations (NBE) said that the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test for postgraduate (NEET PG 2022) registration will begin on January 15.

The NEET PG 2022 exam date is March 12 and the last date to join after the NEET PG Counselling stray round is March 16, 2022. It is important to note that the NEET PG 2021 exam was held in September last year due to the Covid-19 pandemic and usually the next exam is conducted after a year gap. However, starting NEET PG 2022 four days before the NEET PG Counselling ends has left students with a difficult choice.

Postpone NEET PG 2022, students demand

Many students have tagged union health minister Manshuk Mandaviya, Prime Minister Narendra Modi and requested to postpone NEET PG 2022 due to clash in dates.

The Indian Medical Association (IMA) Maharashtra Chapter wrote a letter to the National Medical Commission stating the difficulties faced by students as NEET PG 2022 is scheduled on March 12.

An aspirant said, “The counselling gets over by 16th march and exam date is 12th March. We need gap between counselling and exam to prepare for the last NEET PG 2022. Please postpone exam till June/ July to do justice to aspirants. Kindly help us.”

Another candidate said, “8300 + interns are not eligible for NEETPG2022 from 12 states of the country And still Narendra Modi (government) is adament to conduct exams on March 12 without completing previous year counselling! Lathi charged on doctors a month back and now this!”

Calling it unfair, a aspirant requested to postpone NEET PG 2022.
