In a letter addressed to the officials, the NBE stated, "If NEET PG exam 2022 takes place on the scheduled date, we will have no choice but to surrender our medical degrees."

The All India Medical Students Association (AIMSA) on May 4 moved the Supreme Court of India to defer the NEET PG 2022 exam by 8 to 10 weeks. A large section of students have also been demanding for the postponement on Twitter and other social media citing that the clash between the NEET PG 2021 Counselling and NEET PG 2022 exam will make nearly 5,000 aspirants ineligible.
