The NEET-PG counseling will commence from January 12, Union Health Minister Mansukh Mandaviya said on Sunday. The Supreme Court on January 7, in an interim order, allowed resumption of medical counseling for NEET-PG admissions for the year 2021-22.
It also upheld the validity of 27 percent OBC and 10 percent EWS quotas. “As assured by the Ministry of Health to the resident doctors, following the order of the Honourable Supreme Court, the NEET-PG counseling is being started by the Medical Counselling Committee from January 12, 2022.
“This will give more strength to the country in the fight against Corona. My best wishes to all the candidates,” Mandaviya said in a tweet in Hindi. The NEET-PG exam was held on September 11, 2021, after being rescheduled twice in January and April. Its results were declared in the last week of September following which students for nearly 45,000 postgraduate seats had been waiting for the counseling to begin.
