Message from Gen. Secretary regarding NEET PG

Many of our members are confused and apprehensive on the implementation of NEET in our state. The NEET for PG courses will be held by National Board of Examinations. The prospectus for the same has been issued.
Going by it and other information as available at www.nbe.gov.in/neetpg/ , the salient points are as under:-
· All students aspiring for admission in PG course in both Govt. and Private Colleges, whether as in service candidates or as open candidates, should appear for PG NEET.
· This test is necessary to gain admission in any college except for AIIMS New Delhi, PGIMER Chandigarh, JIPMER Puducherry or such institutions as may be notified MoHFW, Government of India.
· For eligibility, a candidate should score 50th percentile (40th in case of SC/ST/OBC & 45th percentile for candidates eligible under physically challenged category as defined in the information bulletin) to become eligible. Kindly note that it is percentile, not percent.
· The NBE holding the test will issue an all India ranking and the State ranking on the basis of marks obtained in NEET.
· 50% of PG Seats in the state will be allotted by State quota and 50% by All India quota as done in pre-NEET situation.
· In the 50% state quota all the prevalent state reservations will continue. This means the service quota will continue.
· For the all India quota, 50% of all diplomas are reserved for Service doctors working in remote areas. (The remote area will be defined by the respective state).
· Provided that in determining the merit of candidates who are in service of Government/public authority, weight age in the marks may be given by the Government /Competent Authority as an incentive at the rate of 10% of the marks obtained for each year of service in remote and /or difficult areas upto the maximum of 30% of the marks obtained in National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test.
· There shall be no negative marking.
· The private college/s in the state should surrender 50% of the P.G. seats to the state quota and the rest 50% will be management seats but they also will be filled on the basis of ranking of this test.
· The state will not lose any seat from the pre-NEET position but should rather gain 50% of the seats as available in private medical college in the state.
All are reminded that this system is being introduced for the first time and there may be a few grey areas. You are requested to check the NBE website frequently in order to be updated about any new development/ clarification.
You all are requested to identify the areas of concern with regard to NEET that need to be looked into and convey the same to the state body.
The association is in the process of taking up the issues arising out of this new arrangement with the authorities concerned and hopefully, clarifications will be issued in due course.
We request all the members desirous of joining PG course to apply online for NEET and prepare for the exam on the guidelines given in NBE website and to give it their best shot.
Wishing you all the best.
With warm regards,
Dr Ashish Rana,
State Gen Secretary,
H.C.M.S. Association.


  1. sir, i am from punjab, done mbbs from punjab, having domicile of punjab. but have completed four years in service in haryana, how will my rank will come in hcms as in applying form it's nothing written about hcms.

  2. dear doctor,
    i would like to draw your kind attention to the following link - http://www.nbe.gov.in/neetpg/pdoofs/Public%20Notice.pdf
    you will be ranked in the lists as per this letter.
    and rest assured,if you fulfill the conditions of being an in service candidate, the benefit will be extended to you.
    there are many areas which are not clarified with regard to this test which is to be expected when such a major change is being implemented for the first time.But hopefully, things should fall in place.

  4. Dear dr nishikant,
    thanks for your best wishes.
    The process of building up a database of members has already been started.
    We are looking into the possibility of issue of i cards, member directory, group sms facility etc.
    With the help and co operation of our member friends, we are hopeful that this association will become a platform for exchange of ideas and increased interaction among the members.

    dr.ashish rana.

  5. there is a facebook facility started by me when i was in panchkula named hcms platform you can visit it and popularize it as lots of young doctors are using facebook. i just want to bring to you attention that a lot of young doctors are leaving the job in hordes it is causing big trouble to seniors as there is no one to do casualty duties. i suggest you to start a mentor ship program for young doctors so as to guide them and telling them that this job is not as bad as they think. thank you.

  6. hi, Dr Ashish! i have came to know that some purposal to DG is going on regarding specialist cadre.my suggestion is ....to consider experience of diploma/degree specialists in medical colleges[govt./semigovt.] PRIOR to joining HCMS for seniority as well as financial benefits. usaul period is 3 to 5 years.
