NEET PG 2023: Cut-off date for internship extended, application reopens

Tuesday, the Union Ministry of Health and Family Welfare extended the deadline for MBBS students to complete their one-year mandatory internship in order to apply for the NEET PG-2023 exam from June 30 to August 11.

The ministry had previously extended the deadline for the same, extending it from 31 March to 30 June in a notification that was released on January 13.

A notice from the National Board of Examinations (NBEMS) stated, “the cut-off date for completion of an internship for the purpose of eligibility for NEET-PG 2023 has been further extended to August 11.”

The notice also stated that students who have completed their required internship between July 1 and August 11 are now eligible to apply for the NEET PG-2023 exam. These candidates will be able to complete the applications, which will be made available from 3 p.m. on February 9 to 11 p.m. on February 12 if they meet all other necessary eligibility requirements.

Regarding the locations of the examinations, the notice states that these candidates can select one of the cities that were open when the previous registration window closed on January 27. The notification states that the centers will be distributed in a first-come, first-served manner.

The NEET PG-2023 examination is scheduled for March 5. The ministry was being urged to extend the eligibility date by numerous student union bodies and potential candidates. Candidates and such organizations are currently requesting that the NEET PG-2023 exam be postponed.

In India, the NEET PG (National Eligibility and Entrance Test for Postgraduate) is a national level exam for admission to MS, MD, and PG Diploma postgraduate medical programs. The National Board of Examinations conducts the exam each year.

HC Grants Interim Relief: MP MBBS Students allowed to appear for NEET PG 2023 despite completing internship in July

On Tuesday, the principal bench of the Madhya Pradesh high court in Jabalpur granted MBBS students temporary relief, allowing them to apply online for the National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test for Post-Graduation, or NEET PG.

The deadline for submitting the application to the National Board of Examinations in Medical Sciences (NBEMS) is January 27. Forms can be submitted until noon.

The examination will be held on March 5. Due to the fact that their internship ends on July 25 and the deadline is June 30, approximately 1,500 MBBS students are currently out of the race.

“MBBS students of MP who have been declared in-eligible because their one-year internship is ending on 25 July 2023—around a month later than the cutoff date—will now be able to at least fill out their forms,” said Advocate Aditya Sanghi, who appeared on behalf of MBBS students.

“Due to the omission and commission of MP Medical Science University, Jabalpur, the internship that began on July 25, 2022, will automatically end on July 25, 2023, after one year has passed. The petitioners were granted interim relief by the High Court, which gave them until January 27, 2023, to complete the forms. The online application deadline is January 27, 2023, 11: 55 am. The advocate stated, “The non-completion of the internship period would have wasted a full year of the MBBS students’ time and prevented them from being eligible for Pre PG examination eligibility.”

NEET PG 2023: Why do experts think that a postponement is unlikely?

Will the NMC comply with the demands of thousands of students to postpone NEET PG 2023? Experts disagree. They assert that students would have been informed by now if such a plan was in the works. However, they also state that they are making efforts to have the NBE—the National Board of Examination—reconsider a postponement.

How things stand:

 

RTI and health activist Dr. Vivek Pandey says, “I sent an RTI query to NBE on January 17 to ask if any discussions are being held regarding a postponement.” I was supposed to get a response within 48 hours, but I haven’t yet (January 23). I have tried unsuccessfully to get in touch with the authorities. Therefore, I believe the exam will not be postponed.”

“NEET PG will not be postponed as of now,” tweeted Dr. Rohan Krishnan, Chairman of FAIMA (Federation of All India Medical Association). We try to convince the ministry to do the same, but sometimes we are powerless. Therefore, I ask you to concentrate on your studies and will keep you informed of any positive developments. Similar to NEET PG, NEET MDS may receive an extension of eligibility.

Flashback to the NEET PG postponement The NEET PG exam was announced to be held on March 5 this year, whereas it was held on May 21 in 2022, in order to align the academic calendar with the pre-pandemic schedule. The internship eligibility date was initially extended from March 31 to June 30, as requested by students. The demand for a delay came next.

The following are the reasons given by students seeking a delay in the exam:

1. The fact that many will not have finished their internship by the time the exam starts puts them under even more pressure.
2. Because their internship ends after the June 30 deadline, many are still unable to take the exam.
3. Students claim that they require additional time to prepare for the NEET PG 2023 exam, and the stray vacancy round for the position has just come to an end on January 10.
4. Aspirants will be idle during the possible four-month delay in counseling after the exam.

The last reason is often overlooked. A number of organizations representing students, parents, and even medical professionals, such as FAIMA and the United Doctors Front Association, have written to the authorities to request a postponement. #neepg2023 has become a popular hashtag as a result of the fact that many people regularly post this request to social media in an effort to get the attention of the relevant authorities.

According to experts, “The counseling is likely to be delayed, as a batch has just been admitted following the stray-vacancy round. “It will be difficult for colleges to admit a second batch of students within a gap of four months if counselling is conducted immediately after the exam in April,” Dr. Pandey stated. He went on to say that the same issue arose with NEET UG admissions the year before, when schools were forced to admit two batches of students at once.

On the other hand, Dr. Aviral Mathur, President of FORDA (Federation of Resident Doctors’ Association), states that the counseling date cannot be predicted at this time. After the results and seat matrix are released, it can only be determined,” he explains.

Isn’t it better to postpone NEET?

Dr. Pandey affirms. However, Dr. Mathur points out that FORDA requested polls to determine how many students desired a postponement in order to gain a better understanding of the situation. The attendance was very low; “Only approximately 10,000 students took part,” he stated. He explained that this was because, even though the polls were conducted online, the majority of students preparing for the NEET PG avoided social media. Despite this, we received a variety of responses,” he continued.

Dr. Mathur says that some students, especially post-interns (those who have finished their internship), wanted the exam to be held in March as planned because they wanted to finish it as soon as possible. The third group of students requested a postponement, while another group of students did not want to postpone the exam because they believed that preparing for a few more months would only increase the pressure.

On the other hand, a Twitter poll that FAIMA has been conducting since January 21 shows that out of 6,456 participants, 85.6 percent favor a postponement and 12.5% oppose it. About 1.9% of students do not want FAIMA to intervene in the situation.

“As a result, we want the government to examine the situation from every angle before making a decision.” However, “the authorities should consider the sentiments of all the students if there is a possibility of delay in the counseling, and no student should suffer,” Dr. Mathur states.

Some sound advice for students: “Now that it is unlikely that the exam will be postponed, the experts advise students to concentrate on properly preparing.” Discussion of postponement is inappropriate at this time. Rumors have a negative impact on students’ preparation because they easily become distracted. They will be informed if the exam is postponed. However, Dr. Mathur states, “It is time to buckle up and give their best with only a month to go until the exam.”

Additionally, in a video that was shared on Twitter, Dr. Pandey addresses students who are considering filing a lawsuit. He suggests that doing so at this time would be premature. However, students must first approach their local state authorities and request an intervention if they are interested. A legal route can be pursued if nothing comes of it,” he states. In addition, rather than directly submitting a case to the Supreme Court, he suggests contacting a High Court.

Around 7,000 resident doctors in Maharashtra go on strike

When there were concerns about the new Omicron variant, the Maharashtra Association of Resident Doctors said that the government ignored their demands and forced it to think about shutting down emergency services.

State medical education minister Girish Mahajan told reporters he had asked resident doctors to talk to each other and told them not to make the situation any worse.

The strike was called by MARD, which claimed that poor hostel conditions were causing issues for students attending government colleges.

Additionally, the resident doctors have demanded that 1,432 senior resident doctors be hired and that associate and assistant professor positions be filled

Resident doctors calls strike : by MARD

 

MARD said in the event that their requests are acknowledged, it will extraordinarily help the state’s wellbeing framework.

Dean Dipali Sapale stated that there has not yet been a significant impact at Sir JJ Hospital, Mumbai’s largest state-run medical facility.

“They (the residents) have not reduced their services in the Intensive Care Unit, labor ward, or emergency rooms. The senior specialists take care of the general ward and OPDs. Additionally, routine surgeries have taken place,” Sapale stated.

Minister Mahajan stated that the public works department has received Rs 12 crore for repairs and that half of the demands of the striking doctors will be met immediately.

“We have high hopes for everything. Before going on strike, they ought to have spoken with us,” Mahajan stated.

MARD president Avinash Dahiphale stated to PTI that the association has not received a proposal for talks from the state government. Residents serve as an essential cog in public and government-run hospitals that see a lot of patients.
