Centre announces NEET dates

The Central government on Wednesday announced the dates for holding the first all India level entrance examination for entry into various post-graduate medical disciplines offered by institutions under the Medical Council of India.

The first NEET-PG, for admissions to MD or MS or PG Diploma courses in 2013-14 will be held online by the National Board of Examination from November 23 to December 6, 2012, at centres in 34 cities of the country.

The details of NEET-PG for medical courses are available at the website www.nbe.gov.in/neetpg

The government had earlier entrusted the responsibility of conducting an all-India common entrance test for post graduate medical education to the NBE hoping to bring transparency and streamline the admission process to post-graduate medical and dental courses.

The NEET-PG for dental courses will be conducted by the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS).
