Residents Doctors To Stage Strike From Tomorrow Over Delay In NEET-PG Counselling 2021

New Delhi: Protesting the repeated postponement of National Eligibility Entrance Test postgraduate (NEET PG) counselling 2021, the Federation of Resident Doctors’ Association (FORDA) on Friday called a nationwide strike from Saturday (November 27).

Issuing a statement, the FORDA said it has requested all resident doctors across the country to withdraw from Out Patient Department (OPD) services from Saturday.

“The already overburdened and exhausted Resident Doctors of the nation fighting at the frontline since the beginning of the COVID-19 Pandemic have been waiting patiently till date for some positive outcome of Supreme Court proceedings in the matter of already delayed NEET-PG 2021 counselling. However, there seems to be no respite to their physical and mental distress, with the next court hearing scheduled on 6th January 2022,” the Association stated in a release.

The Association has urged the Centre and Supreme Court to take note of the grievances of resident doctors and take necessary steps for expediting the NEET-PG counselling 2021 as well as the admission process.
