Dear health minister request take a decision whether there is going to be a reduction in the PG NEET 2017 qualifying marks or not.

The PG NEET 2017 students who missed the qualifying marks with a whisker are looking forward with a hope, that they may get qualified.

Thus enabling the PG NEET appeared candidates to join the counseling process.

Or are we going to get a statement that the matter is court and we cannot comment. That the court will decide. We will go by what court says.

For every small issue, we are wasting the precious time of honorable courts.

Anyways, coming to the point, for those who may want to know.

The reason why the Health Minister of AP asked for reduction of PG qualifying marks is valid.

Is Reduction of PG NEET Qualifying Marks for AP and Telangana reasonable?

In fact, there are 2947 PG seats in AP and Telangana as of today ( 30 March 2017 ).

1497 PG seats are allotted to AP.

However, 4906 candidates from AP have qualified in NEET 2017.

Thus the ratio ( 1497 : 4906) comes to 1 : 2.5, which is far below the MCI norms.

So in this kind of scenario, most of the candidates from AP and Telangana have not qualified.

Thus loosing the opportunity to take admission in any clinical or non-clinical PG courses.

Hence by reducing the PG qualifying marks, it would give the chance to more PG NEET 2017 candidates from AP to do PG course, without loosing this academic year.

Thus it is high time the health ministry and the health minister of AP and Telangana; take a decision with a yes or no about reduction of PG NEET qualifying Marks.
