The Union Health Ministry on Saturday announced that the NEET-PG Entrance Examination, scheduled to be held on June 23, has been postponed, as a precautionary measure in the wake of recent allegations on the integrity of certain competitive exams. 

The fresh date of this examination will be notified at the earliest, the ministry said.

Ministry of Health has decided to undertake a thorough assessment of the robustness of processes of the NEET-PG entrance examination, conducted by the National Board of Examination (NTA) for medical students, it said.

“It has accordingly been decided, as a precautionary measure to postpone the NEET-PG entrance examination, scheduled to be held tomorrow — 23rd June, 2024,” the ministry said.

“Ministry of Health sincerely regrets the inconvenience caused to the students. This decision has been taken in the best interests of the students and to maintain the sanctity of the examination process,” the statement added.

Congress leader Jairam Ramesh hit out at the government for the cancellation of the exam.


“No day is complete without news of cancellation of an exam because of the total incompetence of the non- biological PM and the people around him. The latest exam to be put off is NEET-PG, which was scheduled to be held tomorrow,” Jairam Ramesh said in a post on X.
