Reflecting similar concerns, the Indian Medical Association (IMA) wrote a letter to Union Health Minister Mansukh Mandaviya, urging him to reduce the percentile to 30 per cent. The Indian Medical Association stated, “Due to the high cut-off scores, medical aspirants will not only be prevented from pursuing postgraduate education but will also have to travel abroad to pursue their dream field of postgraduate studies, making the medical manpower in India is further reduced. We cannot afford to lose these precious gems at a time when the country needs a full-fledged medical army to protect its citizens.”
Last year, the Health Ministry, on the recommendation of the NMC, lowered the NEET PG qualifying percentile. As per the revised criteria, the cut-offs were fixed at 25 percentile for the general category, 20 percentile for persons with disabilities (general) and 15 percentiles for Scheduled Caste, Scheduled Tribe, Other Backward Class and persons with disabilities.
