The National Eligibility cum Entrance Test postgraduate (NEET PG) counselling 2021 will begin from January 12, Health Minister Dr Mansukh Mandaviya has announced. This comes after the Supreme Court has allowed the Medical Counselling Commitee (MCC) to go ahead with the counselling process for the medical college PG seats. Students who have cleared the NEET PG will be eligible to register themselves at the MCC website at mcc.nic.in, once the application link is activated.
“NEET-PG counseling is being started by MCC from January 12, 2022, following the order of the Hon’ble Supreme Court, as assured by the Ministry of Health to the resident doctors. This will give more strength to the country in the fight against Corona. My best wishes to all the candidates,” tweeted Mandaviya.

Several NEET PG aspirants are saying that the counselling process has still been delayed. Resident doctors have been protesting across the country to expedite the entire process. The delay was caused after the Supreme Court expressed doubts on the central government’s decision to set Rs 8 lakh as the annual income limit to avail of EWS quota.
Commenting on Mandaviya’s post, aspirants have said that counselling process has still been delayed as it will take nearly two months to complete the entire process and many doctors may be infected by the Covid-19 by then.
“Still delayed..it takes nearly 2 months for the completion of counselling…till then covid might infect many doctors..Ultimately it is the lose of the health care system. I must say sir..this time your govt ruined itt..!!” wrote one user. (sic)
