NEET PG has been called off sources confirmed, with less than four months to go Medical Council of India decided not to conduct National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET PG) in 2012. As reported earlier, AIIMS has not agreed to hold the mass common medical entrance test citing lack of resources and inadequate infrastructure. Government and MCI had left with no other choice than to call off NEET PG till 2013, although AIIMS conducts national level entrance test for 50% of the postgraduate medical seats in the country remaining 50% is still a big number.
There are approximately 21000 postgraduate medical seats in India, National Board for Examination (NBE) will be trained with adequate resources and infrastructure to conduct NEET PG from 2013 (via). To say the least NEET PG has been called off, poor planning and lack of understanding on implementation procedure has resulted and pushed MCI to play safe.
No update yet on the official MCI website, which still reads NEET is going to happen in January or February 2012 and mentions forms will be issued soon. A real pathetic scenario where in official announcements are not placed or communicated to the benefit of students; a time when Right to Information act has been stressed by our HRD and Government still no such thing exists in some domains.
What is your take? Did MCI communicated the information in right manner?
