The NEET-PG exam for postgraduate medical course admissions will be conducted this month, according to sources cited by NDTV on Tuesday, July 2. This update follows a meeting between the Home Ministry and officials from the government’s anti-cybercrime unit. Sources indicated that the question paper would be created just two hours before the exam.

Originally set for June 23, the NEET-PG exam was postponed hours before its start due to allegations of irregularities, including paper leaks for the undergraduate exam. The government announced a thorough review of the NEET-PG’s processes, managed by the National Board of Examinations for medical students, deeming this decision in the best interest of the students.

The exam’s postponement, affecting thousands of aspiring medical professionals, led to widespread protests, particularly from those who had traveled long distances for the test.

In response, Education Minister Dharmendra Pradhan established a committee to investigate the complaints.

The cancellation of the NEET-PG exam came amid public outcry over potential misconduct in both the NEET-UG and UGC-NET tests. The UGC-NET test, crucial for professorial appointments in colleges and universities and awarding research fellowships, was also scrutinized.

Last month, Pradhan confirmed that questions from these exams were being sold on the darknet, spotlighting the National Testing Agency (NTA), which conducts both tests. This revelation led to the dismissal of NTA chief SK Singh.

The re-test for the NET exam, invalidated two days after its initial conduct, is scheduled for July 25-27. The NTA has faced criticism from students, parents, and opposition parties.
