New Delhi: Seeking the demands for postponement, The Indian Medical Association (IMA) on Wednesday requested Union Health Minister Mansukh Mandaviya to reschedule the NEET PG exam, which was going to held on May 21. IMA has send a letter regarding this to union home minister from their twitter handle.
Further, the association said that there is very little difference between NEET PG 2022 exam date and 2021 counseling and It is not enough to prepare for NEET PG exam.
The IMA in its letter wrote “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.”
