NEET-PG exam

NEET-PG exam

The Supreme Court on Thursday approved a plea by nine doctors to leave the exam centre for the next national admission test-post graduation (NEET-PG) On Saturday due to COVID-19 restriction and the fact that some of them are required to travel to states to leave where the number of COVID-19 cases continues to rise.

To convince the doctors to get rid of their fears, judges UU Lalit, S.Ravindra Bhat And Bella M.Trivedi said: “ today people are travelling everywhere. When you go to the airport, every flight is completely booked.”Senior lawyer Meenakshi Arora, who has appeared before doctors, said one of the petitioners was seconded to Varanasi for the Covid-19 service, where the Covid-19 situation is largely under control, and is taking place in Kerala to test NEET PG .

“At this point, not many people will travel to Kerala where there is an increase in Covid-19 cases every day,” Arora said. Other petitioners also had to travel between the states of Delhi, Gujarat, Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu and Karnataka.The bench said, “With so many people being vaccinated, the severity of the Covid-19 pandemic is not as it was earlier. Life is going on as usual.”Arora clarified that these are young doctors from the Covid-19 service who were on call before the 15th.

The exam was scheduled for April 18 and was postponed to September 11 with a notice of July 13.Four of the nine petitioners had to travel inside or outside Kerala. The motion filed by lawyer Charu Mathur reads as follows: “Those currently located in the state of Kerala and travelling long distances to reach the centre will not only expose themselves to the virus but will also be a health hazard for thousands of others.

Further, most of the candidates will travel along with their parents to the examination centre and thus their parents will be severely exposed to the deadly virus.”Arora went on to say that in light of the Covid-19 outbreak in Kerala, the highest court recently postponed the 11th grade physical exams, which were due to begin on September 6th. It stated that the registration and selection center would be open to eligible candidates August 16-25 based on the government's decision, a rate of 27% for other backward classes (OBC) and a rate of 10% to provide economically weaker sections.

(EWS)) in 50% of all Indian family doctor / dental practices. "See how absurd it is to offer the option to those who signed up in August but not us," explains Arora.The bench said, “We had made an exception a week back for two doctors who were in their seventh and eighth month of pregnancy, allowing them a change of examination centre in view of their difficulty to travel. But in your case, you were well aware of the examination being held. We will dismiss your petition.
