NEW DELHI: Just two weeks left for the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test - Postgraduate (NEET PG 2023) and candidates continue to demand postponement. The National Board ExaminatIon (NBE) will conduct the NEET PG 2023 exam on March 5.

Amid several requests on social media and letters addressed to union health minister to postpone NEET PG 2023 by 2-3 months, Mansukh Mandaviya recently told the Lok Sabha that the NEET PG exam 2023 will be held on the scheduled date to prevent further delay in the process. However, students continue to voice their demands for postponement.

Telangana High Court, which was hearing a petition seeking postponement of NEET PG 2023 exam, recently dismissed the case and requested the National Medical Commission (NMC) to reconsider its decision to hold it on March 5. The court gave two weeks for the commission to reply.

The students have filed a separate plea for NEET PG postponement in the Supreme Court. The apex court has not yet fixed a date for hearing the petition. However, a large section of students are still awaiting for the ministry of health and family welfare (MoHFW) to issue a notice on rescheduling of the NEET PG exam.

Rohan Krishnan, national chairman of the Federation of All India Medical Association (FAIMA), who has been actively voicing in support of students demanding NEET postponement, said that “NEET PG will be considered postponed only after official notice is released by the authorities”.

Urging students to prepare for the March 5 exam, he further informed that the high court has suggested extending the dates and NMC has agreed to consider the request. However it will not include NEET MDS 2023, Rohan Krishnan said on Twitter. Earlier, the health ministry extended the MBBS internship cut-off date to August 11
