Delay in counselling
This year, the NEET PG counselling process was delayed after a plea was filed in the court against the government’s decision to make changes in the reservation criteria. This counselling is supposed to provide admission to medical students in post-graduate courses in government colleges and over 100 private colleges.
The delay in the admission process and the matter of reservation criteria made students protest which ended after the Supreme Court’s intervention. The Health Minister said that “NEET-PG counselling will begin by MCC (Medical Counselling Committee) from 12 January 2022, following the order of the Hon’ble Supreme Court, as assured by the Ministry of Health to the resident doctors. Also, this will give more strength to the country in the fight against Corona. My best wishes to all the candidates,”
