Demand for a Cut-Off Marks Reduction
Amidst the release of NEET PG 2023 seat allotment results, there is a growing demand from various medical associations for a reduction in the qualifying cut-off percentile. The United Doctors Front Association (UDFA) has written a letter to Union Health Minister Mansukh Mandaviya and the National Medical Commission (NMC), urging them to consider lowering the cut-off percentile. Their aim is to enable more candidates to participate in the ongoing counselling process and secure admission to postgraduate courses.
The Indian Medical Association (IMA) has voiced similar concerns, advocating for a reduction in the percentile by up to 30 percent. The IMA emphasized the importance of this change, stating, “As a result of high cut-off scores, medical aspirants will not only be prevented from pursuing postgraduation within the country but may also be compelled to seek postgraduate opportunities abroad. This would further deplete India’s medical manpower pool precisely when the nation requires a robust medical workforce to safeguard its citizens.”
It’s worth noting that last year, the Ministry of Health, following the NMC’s recommendation, reduced the NEET PG qualifying percentiles. Under the revised criteria, the cut-offs were set at 25 percentile for the general category, 20 percentile for Persons with Disabilities (General), and 15 percentiles for Scheduled Caste, Scheduled Tribe, Other Backward Class, and Persons with Disabilities.
