According to the plea file, the delay in the counseling process is “unjust” and that a separate counseling session for NEET MDS 2021 aspirants be conducted. Every year, the counseling of NEET-PG and NEET MDS is conducted together. However, for this , the NEET PG exams are yet to be held. Hence, the plea pointed that if the committee waits for the NEET PG exams to be over, then it will impact the NEET MDS aspirants. .
The plea filed through advocates Tanvi Dubey and Charu Mathur stated that the duration of announcement of results of NEET MDS and the NEET-PG examination is at least one month, as per past records.
The counseling schedule for NEET-PG is released three months subsequently the results. “Therefore, it will be unrealistic to organize the counseling for both the examinations together, as it would infinitely delay the counseling for the NEET-MDS candidates and would cause undue hardship to the NEET-MDS aspirants,” the petition said.
The plea was filed two weeks ago. No counseling dates have been announced yet. The aspirants demanded that the counseling date should be fixed not later than three weeks.
