No PG Postponement and Exam Will Be Held on 5 March
The Supreme Court has dismissed all petitions seeking NEET PG 2023 postponement, and the exam will take place as scheduled on March 05, 2023. The aspirants have been pushing for an exam date extension to reduce the gap of around five months between the date of the exam and the date of MBBS internship completion.
Union Health Minister Mansukh Mandaviya had also clarified in the Parliament that NEET PG 2023 examination would be conducted on the scheduled date. The National Medical Commission (NMC) released its speaking order on Friday, 24th February, and disposed of the representations. The Supreme Court bench sought responses from the National Board of Examinations (NBE) during the hearing of petitions, and the bench deferred the matter. The last year’s internship extension was brief, and the bench noted that today, the aspirants have been asking for a more extended postponement.
As ASG, Aishwarya Bhati asked the bench to refer to the dates furnished before the court. “The date was announced six months ago. Everyone who applied in the first window is 2 lakh 3 thousand,” she said.
Furthermore, the Medical Council of India has announced the commencement of counseling for medical aspirants post-exam, scheduled to begin from July 15, 2023. All students who are completing their internship on August 11, 2023, are eligible to avail of the counseling services.
