New Delhi: The National Eligibility cum Entrance Test postgraduate or NEET PG 2023 examination will be held on March 5 as scheduled confirmed Mansukh Mandaviya, Union Minister of Health and Family Welfare, in the Lok Sabha on Friday, February 10, 2023.
While responding to a question posed by Gaurav Gogoi, a Congress member, the health minister stated that NEET PG has been scheduled for March 5 and the exam date was announced five months ago. "The students who plan to take the entrance exam are already preparing for it," said Mandaviya.
