The decision to postpone the NEET 2021 Post Graduate Level Entrance Exam was made with the wellbeing of our young medical students in mind, as per the Health Minister.


Formal Announcement on Twitter: Union Health Minister Dr. Harsh Vardhan today announced the decision to postpone the Postgraduate level medical entrance exam to a later date, following repeated requests from medical aspirants who are scheduled to appear for the NEET PG 2021 exam. Mr. Harsh Vardhan tweeted, "In light of the increase in #COVID19 incidents, the Government of India has decided to postpone the #NEETPG2021 exam, which was previously scheduled to be held on the 18th April."  He went on to say that the decision was made with the wellbeing of our young medical students in mind.

Decision addresses Concerns of Medical Candidate: Following the formal announcement by the Union Health Minister that the NEET PG 2021 exam will be postponed, many medical aspirants have expressed their gratitude for the decision, which addresses their concerns. Several NEET PG 2021 aspirants had previously written to the NBE – National Board of Examinations and the Health Minister, urging them to postpone the exam due to the rapid rise in COVID-19 cases and deteriorating situation across the country.

In fact, following the second wave of the pandemic, media reports revealed that so many state governments had enlisted the help of MBBS students for COVID-19 duty. If the exam was not postponed, those students who were actively involved in COVID-19 duty would be unable to attend. As a result, medical aspirants and other stakeholders have praised the decision.
