NEW DELHI: The Tamil Nadu Member of Parliament Madurai constituency S Venkatesan has written to union health minister Mansukh Mandviya demanding postponement of the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test postgraduate (NEET PG 2022) exam by a month due to a clash with the NEET PG Counselling 2021.

MP Venkatesan said, “Postpone the NEET PG medical examinations. The examinations for NEET PG 2022 has been announced even before the counselling of 2021 NEET PG is complete. Does NEET always spell confusion, trouble and injustice for the students?”

In a letter to Mansukh Mandviya, the MP said, “You are aware that online stray vacancy round for AIQ, central and deemed and PG DNB seats counselling has been slated from 11th March and 16th March 2022. Inordinate delay in completion of 2021 counselling is no fault of the candidates.”

“In this situation, date for NEET PG examination has been announced and it is going to be held on 12th March ie even before the conclusion of NEET PG Counselling 2021,” he said.

“It makes many candidates who are attending the counselling on the dates after the NEET PG 2022 are in great ordeal and fear they may have to waste one year because of clash in dates. I feel this is unfair and the said decision to conduct examinations before the end of counselling for the previous year is taken without application of mind.” he added.

The Tamil Nadu MP urged the union health minister to intervene and postpone the NEET PG 2022 exam by one month.

Meanwhile, the National Students’ Union of India (NSUI) and several students have been demanding for NEET PG 2022 postponement.
