The National Eligibility cum Entrance Test for Postgraduate (NEET PG) 2024 has been the talk of the town lately. Initially scheduled for June 23, 2024, the exam has been postponed indefinitely, causing a stir among medical aspirants across the country. Here’s a comprehensive update on the latest developments and what you need to know.

Why Was NEET PG 2024 Postponed?

The Ministry of Health and Family Welfare (MoHFW) decided to postpone the exam due to concerns about the integrity of competitive exams in the nation. The Ministry stated that the robustness of the systems used to administer the NEET-PG entrance examination needed a thorough review.

When Will the New Date Be Announced?

The National Board of Examinations in Medical Sciences (NBEMS) is expected to announce the revised exam date sometime this week on their official website, natboard.edu.in. Education Minister Dharmendra Pradhan had initially suggested that the new date would be announced by July 2 or 3, but this did not happen. Sources now indicate that the exam is likely to be held in mid-August.

Fresh Admit Cards to Be Issued

With the postponement of the exam, NBEMS is anticipated to issue new admit cards in conjunction with the revised exam schedule. Students are advised to keep an eye on the official website for the latest updates.

CBI Crackdown on NEET-UG Paper Leak

In a related development, the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has arrested the principal and vice principal of Oasis School in Hazaribagh, Jharkhand, in connection with the NEET-UG paper leak case. The arrests highlight the ongoing efforts to ensure the integrity of medical entrance examinations.

Political Reactions and Protests

The NEET PG postponement has sparked significant political reactions and protests. The DMK’s student wing protested against NEET in Tamil Nadu, demanding its abolition for medical admissions. Meanwhile, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi has called for a discussion on the NEET issue in Parliament, labeling the medical entrance test a “commercial exam” designed for “rich kids.”

Government’s Response

Prime Minister Narendra Modi has vowed strict action against those responsible for the NEET paper leak scandal, asserting that the government will ensure those accountable face consequences. Additionally, a high-level expert group chaired by former ISRO chairman K Radhakrishnan has been established to offer recommendations for reforms in the NTA’s examination processes.
