The NEET PG Counseling 2022 for the postgraduate admission courses has been adjourned by the Union Health Ministry on Monday. To allow the National Medical Commission (NMC) to complete the process of adding new seats, the counseling for NEET PG 2022 was scheduled to begin on September 1.
The ministry has not yet disclosed the revised schedule, but according to official sources the NEET PG counseling 2022 is likely to begin from the third week of September. “The NEET PG Counseling 2022 was scheduled to begin on September 1. However, the National Medical Council will issue a new letter of permission (LoP’s) for the current academic year and the same will end until September 15. In order to have more seats in council for the benefit of the candidates, the authority has decided to reschedule the NEET PG 2022 counseling, which was scheduled to commence from September 1,” as per the ministry.

The tentative schedule that was released earlier will be adjourned and will be reposted in the MCC's official website
The announcement has come after the Supreme Court refused to postpone the counseling of NEET PG 2022 on the request of the applicants who objected to the decision of National Board of Examinations in Medical Sciences (NBE) not to release the answer key and question paper of NEET PG 2022. The petitioners alleged that there were disparity in the scores of the candidates who have appeared for the exam this year. The aspirants requested that their answer keys be reassessed and the aspirants should be allowed to challenge the answer keys.
“This year's PG Counseling is expected to take place with about a large number of seats compared to last year. Students who have qualified in the exam will be able to fill their choices with respect to courses and colleges during the counseling process for admission to the all India quota seats, state medical and dental colleges, central and deemed universities. PG counseling will start simultaneously for all Central Universities, Deemed Universities and 50 per cent All India Quota and 50 per cent State Quota for Medical and Dental Colleges," says Gaurav Tyagi, a renowned medical counselor and founder of Career Xpert.
