The Supreme Court on Friday heard the petition for postponement of the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test – Postgraduate (NEET PG) 2023.
However, no decision was taken at the apex court, as the bench has decided to hear the plea further on Monday. Aspirants and FAIMA delegates have been protesting for the past few weeks, demanding deferment of the exam.
NEET PG is scheduled to be conducted on March 5. The result for the same will be available tentatively by March 31. However, FAIMA (Federation of All India Medical Association) and aspirants claim that if the time between the entrance exam and the counselling is not reduced, then it will lead to a waste of time for candidates.
“The NEET PG aspirants will not be able to apply for jobs during this time as there is a dearth of jobs in the medical industry and people usually don’t offer jobs for such short time periods. Due to this, the few months between the exam and counselling will be a complete waste for students. If the authorities delay the NEET PG, at least students will be able to study properly and then get better scores, rather than wasting time,” Dr Rakesh Bagdi Gurjar, former FAIMA.
This year NEET PG 2023 will be conducted at more than 800 centers for more than 2 lakh students, NBE has claimed.
