Referring to the fact that every year, a large number of seats including clinical, paraclinical as well as non-clinical remain vacant because enough candidates above the cut-off do not opt for them, FAIMA had mentioned that in the state of medical emergency that India is dealing with, the country cannot afford any vacancies in this field.

“We request you to kindly revise the qualifying score in mopup adequately so that all seats including basic subjects are filled in States as well AIQ counselling,” the letter had mentioned.
The Union Health Ministry has now responded to the representation as it has forwarded the matter to the Executive Director of the National Board of Examinations (NBE).

Speaking about the issue, Dr Rohan Krishnan, the President of FAIMA told Medical Dialogues, “After we submitted our representation before the Health Ministry, it had pointed out that the final authority in this matter was NBE and NMC. Back then, the Health Ministry officials had expressed that they were also in favour of decreasing the cut-off in the NEET PG counselling. In fact, it was the concern of the Health Minister as well that the non-clinical subjects in the first and second year get filled and for that he had also opined that the cut-off criteria should be done away with.”

“The mop-up counselling is set to start from March 2 and we are hopeful that before the commencement of the mop-up counselling, the cut-off criteria will get revised, and maximum relaxation will be given so that maximum number of seats get filled” he added.
