A bench of Justices Dipankar Datta and S R Bhat was informed by Additional Solicitor General (ASG) Aishwarya Bhati, representing the National Board of Examinations (NBE), that NEET PG admit card 2023 have been released on Monday as per the original schedule and the counselling may begin on July 15, 2023.
“There is no date available in the near future with our technology partner to conduct the NEET PG exam,” she told the SC bench, which dismissed to entertain the two pleas.
The petitioners have sought the medical entrance exam postponement, saying that the counselling is to be held after August 11, 2023, since the internship cut-off date has been extended to that date.
On Friday, the NBE had told the Supreme Court that nearly 2.09 lakh students have registered for the NEET PG 2023 exam and no alternate date for conducting the medical examination may be at hand in the near future if the entrance exam is delayed.
The NEET PG exam 2023 will be conducted as per the schedule on March 05, 2023, for those candidates to get admission to PG medical courses, Union Health Minister Mansukh Mandaviya had told Lok Sabha on February 10, 2023.
Not to much surprise for NEET-PG aspirants, but their expectations of exam postponement end with the apex court’s decision today.
