In 2013, the application fee for General and OBC candidates was ₹3750, which was increased to ₹4250 in 2021. As of January 1, 2024, the fee has been revised to ₹3500.

NEET PG 2024 Application Dates and Exam Details

The registration process for NEET PG 2024 has not commenced yet, and there is no update regarding the starting date. Once the registration opens, the information will be first made available on the official website.

As per the program released by NBEMS, the NEET PG 2024 examination is scheduled to take place on July 7, 2024. The eligibility cutoff date for NEET PG 2024 is set for August 15, 2024. NBEMS has notified that the NEET PG 2024 examination, originally scheduled for March 3, has been rescheduled to July 7, 2024, based on the revised program.

No NExT Exam Yet

With the recent enactment of the "Postgraduate Medical Education (Amendment) Act, 2023," which replaces the existing National Eligibility cum Entrance Test for Postgraduate (NEET PG) with the National Exit Test (NExT), the current NEET PG examination will continue until the implementation of NExT for PG admissions. This implies that the NEET PG examination will persist until the National Exit Test (NExT) for PG admissions is officially introduced.
