What happened: Today, the ASG Aishwarya Bhati told the Supreme Court today that the postponement demand is only by a minority number of students. “In the first window, nearly 2.03 lakh students applied. Only 6000 students applied after the internship deadline was extended,” ASG said. After listening to both sides, the bench of Justices S Ravindra Bhat and Dipankar Datta denied the request to postpone the entrance test and refused to hear any pleas seeking postponement of NEET PG 2023.

However, this decision has left aspirants disappointed. “Just like me, several other aspirants had high hopes from the Supreme Court. We had thought that if not NBE then at least the Supreme Court will hear our plea and understand the problems that their future doctors of this country are facing,” Abhishek Choudhary, a NEET PG aspirant from Saharanpur, who is interning at the Muzaffarnagar Medical College till May.

Internship clashes with exam: Just like Abhishek and Neha, there are several candidates whose internship is still going on and they claim they have not had enough time to prepare because of this. “My internship will end on April 10. I have my hospital duty for almost 20-24 hours on a daily basis and this leaves me with no time to prepare for the NEET PG exam. Right now, I am having to prepare for the exam and do my hospital duty diligently at the same time. This has not only just caused extra stress for me, but has also left me with no time to actually study,” said Lakhan Prakash Gupta, who is currently pursuing an internship from Jawaharlal Nehru Medical College, Aligarh Muslim University (AMU).

Candidates are also alleging that the NBE failed to take suggestions from state authorities and other medical institutes. “Health ministry had no ground report on when the exam should be conducted. They did not take any advice from states and institutes about internship eligibility dates, and we can see that in the fact that they changed the internship cut-off date twice after the original announcement. This shows lack of management and accountability on the part of NBE,” Choudhary added. Source: Indian Express
