Subject: Reduction in Qualifying Cut-off Percentile for NET PG 2023 Counselling

Respected Sir,

We would like to emphasize the major issue in relation to ongoing NEET PG 2023
counselling. Thousands MBBS pass-outs who appeared in NET PG 2023, aspire to join
Postgraduate courses. As per the current eligibility criteria for appearing in
Counselling, due to non-reducing the eligibility cut-off marks to Participate in
counselling, currently a big no.of PG Seats are vacant. Registration window for Mop-up Round will be closed on 12/09/2023 as per MCC notification. If BE will not revise the lowering in qualifying cut-off percentile to participate in ongoing counselling the vacancy will be same which will be UNJUSTICE for the potential candidates for getting admission in Post graduate courses.

Large number of PG seats will be wasted for current academic year. India needs
large number of specialists so that they can serve this nation being as a specialist.
Previously on similar grounds MOHFW (Letter no. 23(1)2020-Med./107215-22) &
Letter No.F.No. V.11025/379/2022-MEP dated 17.10.2022 took the decision
and reduced qualifying cut-off percentile for NET PG 2020,21 & 22 counselling to
fill the vacant seats.

Although that reduction in Qualifying percentile criteria wasn’t sufficient to fill all
the vacant PG seats.
For this Year qualifying cut-off percentile must be reduced up to a certain level
more than previous year, so that all clinical and non- clinical seats can be filled.
Its high time the Government of India should make a fair play of justice
to lowering the qualifying cut-off percentile up to a significant level for aspirants to
appear in ongoing counselling.
Therefore, on the behalf of all those MBBS doctors and various representations
we request you to kindly please release reduced qualifying cut-off percentile with
immediate effect so that they can get a fair chance to appear in ongoing NEET PG
2023 Mop-up and stray rounds counselling.
Thanking you in anticipation.
