Allow all NEET-PG aspirants to participate in mop-up counselling, stray vacancy round: IMA

The Indian Medical Association (IMA) has requested the Union Minister of Health Mansukh Mandaviya to allow all the candidates who sat in the NEET-PG exam to participate in the Clearing Advice and Lost Vacancies Round without any restrictions.

Incidentally, these candidates have passed their graduation exam and thus meet the basic eligibility criteria, according to the IMA.

In a letter dated Thursday, the country said it was going through a serious medical emergency and cannot afford any job openings in the medical field.

According to the available data, according to the available data, many postgraduate seats are released every year because enough candidates above the cut-off do not choose them, according to the doctor’s body.

Even in prestigious government colleges, seats remain vacant in paraclinic and basic subjects, it claimed.

“One must see that they have worked in the COVID pandemic as interns, junior residents and other capacities and are registered, medical graduates. They must also undergo rigorous training and pass a final MD/MS exam before they can graduate.

“India needs many specialist doctors and it must be understood that no seat should be left vacant when aspiring candidates are waiting to be admitted but cannot because of the eligibility threshold,” the IMA said.

The doctor’s body said challenging times require innovative measures. “It is therefore requested that the condition of exclusion be waived and the admission offered to all otherwise eligible candidates using NEET rankings. Given the pandemic, this can be seen as a one-off measure for this year.

“It would be really criminal if not all postgraduate seats are filled, even in an emergency. This is a humble request by the Indian Medical Association to expand the number of doctors available,” it said.
