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.”
