FORDA Letter to DGHS India
The letter which was written by the Doctor’s Association to the DGHS, Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, under the Government of India mentions that one super speciality doctor serves the society in innumerable ways and keeping this point in mind, seats cannot be wasted recklessly. It is a significant academic and healthcare loss to the nation.
After the current counselling process (both rounds 1 and 2), reportedly over 1000 seats have remained unfilled across the country. This tremendous loss of opportunity cannot be stressed enough as well as an urgent solution would be significant in this hour of need.
In recent years, the cut-off score was declined remarkably to make up for the eligibility criterion. In addition to this, the notice further informed and suggested that the required step must be considered as the solution to this issue. Along with this, a request has been made for the conduct of a mop-up round, for the current session counselling process in 2022.
FORDA is requesting a prompt resolution from the Director General of Health Services (DGHS) and is also asking that the seats that were not joined or accepted by the medical aspirants which were allotted to them in the counselling round, should be made a part of this mop up round hence adding to the seat pool. The NEET SS Counselling 2022 Round 2 Result was announced on January 4, 2023, and currently, the college reporting phase is going on.
