The Tipraha Indigenous Progressive Regional Alliance (TIPRA) chief Pradyot Manikya has written a letter to the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare requesting the postponement of the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) Post Graduation exams for the year 2022 concerning the tough time being faced by the aspiring candidates.

The letter read: ” The NEET PG 2021 Examination was held on 11th Sept, 2021, but the counselling got delayed by months, & presently it is in process. All India counselling stray rounds will end on 3rd May 2022. The counselling in states will commence after 3rd May 2022. which will probably finish between mid to end of May making it to clash with the examination date for the next session that is scheduled on 21st May 2022.”

He said more than 5000 intern doctors from different states of India are ineligible to appear in the examination as their internship started late. These intern doctors were instructed by the government to tackle the patients during the Covid-19 pandemic times, following which there is a delay in the finish of internships.

Manikya requests that the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare ensure that there is a sufficient gap between one session’s counselling and the next scheduled exams.

“So the examination of NEET PG 2022 should be postponed by minimum 8-10 weeks from the currently scheduled date of exam,” Manikya added.
