NEET PG 2024: On Saturday, the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare (MoHFW) postponed the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test Postgraduate (NEET PG) and said that a new date for the exam will be announced at the earliest. The ministry said that the decision has been taken in view of the recent allegations on the integrity of competitive examinations in the country. The processes of NEET-PG will be thoroughly evaluated, the ministry said.

On June 21, a day before NEET PG was postponed, the National Board of Medical Examinations (NBEMS) said a routine survey conducted by its officials revealed that some fraudsters were trying to deceive NEET PG aspirants on social media.

According to the board, those fraudsters said that they can provide questions for the NEET PG exam obtained through the authority in return for which they would get a huge amount of money.

In its warning notice, the board said, “NBEMS has filed a police complaint against such fraudsters and their accomplices for trying to fool NEET-PG aspirants in the name of providing NEET-PG 2024 questions.”

It warned candidates not to fall prey to misleading claims and said any direct or indirect involvement in such activities will be 'dealt with appropriately'.

Neither the NBE nor the Health Ministry cited paper leak as the reason for postponing the exam. The ministry said the decision was taken in view of recent allegations about the integrity of the conduct of “some competitive examinations”.

These competitive exams include UGC NET, the national level eligibility test for junior research fellowship, assistant professorship and PhD admissions, was cancelled due to paper leak. The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) is investigating the case.
