The NEET-PG 2022 examination has been postponed by the Ministry of Health & Family Welfare.
It was scheduled to be held on March 12. It has now been postponed by six to eight weeks.
This was intimated by Prof (Dr.) B. Srinivas, Assistant Director General (ME), Directorate of Health Services, Ministry of Health & Family Welfare, in a letter to Prof. M. Bajpai. Executive Director, National Board of Examinations (NBE).
Srinivas stated that a lot of representations were being received from medical doctors regarding a request to delay NEET-PG 2022 examination date i.e. 12.03.22 as published in the Information bulletin by NBE since it is clashing with the NEET PG 2021 counseling.
Also, many of the interns would not be able to participate in the PG Counselling 2022 by the month of May/June 2022.
Keeping the above facts in view, the Health Minister has taken the decision to postpone NEET PG 2022 by 6-8 weeks or suitably.
