NEET PG Exam 2022: The Supreme Court has rejected a petition requesting a postponement of the National Admissions Eligibility Test (NEET PG) 2022 for admission to postgraduate medical courses. During the hearing, the Supreme Court said the NEET PG 2022 deferment request could not be accepted because it would affect patient care and the medical profession. The court said that patient care is of paramount importance. Now the NEET PG Exam will be held on the scheduled date of May 21st only. Following the Supreme Court decision, the NEET PG Admit Card can be issued today.
The Supreme Court said that the extension of the NEET PG date will have a significant impact on the admission schedule set by the court in January 2016. As per this schedule, the NEET PG 2022 examination process is already delayed by four months. The center said the NEET PG 2023-24 exam has been scheduled for January 2023. It is the government’s effort to bring back the admission schedule that has been derailed by Kovid-19 over the past two years.
The court accepted the center’s argument that there was already a shortage of resident doctors in hospitals as there were two batches of PG doctors this year. The court said any easing would affect patient care and the availability of doctors. It will also affect the jobs of the 2.06 lakh doctors who registered for NEET-PG 2022 this year.
