NEET-PG 2019 to be Conducted Again for Jammu & Kashmir Students

Most of the candidates from Srinagar Valley who chose an exam centre in Jammu for NEET-PG 2019 were unable to travel to the exam centre due to the complete blockage of air and road transport. The re-exam date for these students shall be announced soon.

The NBE (National Board of Examinations) will conduct NEET-PG 2019 exam again for Jammu & Kashmir medical aspirants who missed the exam due to the hostile weather conditions/ bad weather in the Valley. NEET-PG 2019 was conducted on Sunday, January 06, 2019. Most of the candidates from Srinagar Valley who chose an exam centre in Jammu were unable to travel to the exam centre due to complete blockage of air and road transport. The weather conditions in Srinagar Valley were extreme, as the temperature had gone below the freezing point.

Considering the bad weather conditions in the Valley, NBE consulted Union Health Ministry and MCI (Medical Council of India) seeking approval for conducting NEET-PG 2019 for students who missed the exam due to extreme weather conditions. After holding discussions, MCI and Health Ministry have given their nod for re-conduct of NEET-PG 2019. The official date, venue, and time of the exam shall be informed to candidates soon.
