On Thursday, April 15, Union Health Minister Dr Harsh Vardhan informed that the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test for postgraduate students, scheduled to be held on April 18, has been postponed for the time being, in view of the rising instances of coronavirus.

The examinations of NEET PG are for doctors seeking admission in MS, MD courses. The examination was earlier scheduled to be held in January but was postponed because of the pandemic.

According to reports, a group of doctors had earlier moved the Supreme Court urging for the postponement of the examination, before the Centre announced its decision. The doctors further stated that the candidates who would be appearing in the examinations have been treating patients suffering from the coronavirus.

On the other hand, with the second wave of coronavirus striking India, many students and aspirants have been demanding the postponement of examinations. Similarly, aspirants have been demanding the postponement of the JEE Main examinations 2021.
