Indian Medical Association Urges Health Minister Mansukh Mandaviya


New Delhi: The Indian Medical Association (IMA) has written to Union Health Minister Mansukh Mandaviya and requested him to reschedule the NEET-PG examination, which is to be held on May 21.

In their plea, the association has urged the minister to reschedule the exam citing that the AIQ counselling anticipated to be completed by the end of March 2022 is still in process and is uncertain if it will end by May 7, according to the news agency ANI.

The letter by the association reads, “As a result of the delayed counselling schedule, NEET PG 2022 was deferred from April 2022 to May 2022, so that the candidates could appear for the final stray vacancy round of NEET PG 2021 and can still have plenty of time for preparation and reappearance for the next NEET PG 2022 exam, if they failed to secure a seat this year. However, the AIQ Counselling anticipated to be completed by the end of March 2022, is still in process and is uncertain if it will end by May 7. Several States will also be finishing the counseling around the middle of May 2022.”

Stating that there is little time to prepare, the IMA said,”The difference between NEET PG examination date and completion of 2021 counselling is too short for an aspirant to prepare and appear for an extremely difficult examination like NEET-PG.”

Meanwhile, the National Board of Examination in Medical Sciences (NBEMS) had warned stakeholders against “false and bogus information” being circulated in its name.

The clarification came amid a section of the media reported that NEET PG exam this year was postponed to July 9.

In a tweet, the Press Information Bureau Fact Check handle said, “A FAKE notice issued in the name of the National Board of Examinations claims that the NEET PG exam has been postponed & will now be conducted on 9th July 2022. The exam has not been postponed.”

The exam will be conducted on 21 May 2022 only, it added.
