NEET Exam: Court asks NMC/NBE not to treat young doctors like football

Published

New Delhi: In an important hearing of the Supreme Court of India on September 27 on the issue of change of pattern of NEET examination of medical students, the Court made certain important observations saying that authorities must not play with the lives of young doctors.
Actually, the hearing was about change in the pattern of NEET exams for which 41 post graduate doctors filed a writ petition in the Supreme Court. It is said in the petition that an announcement was made on July 23, 2021 that on November 13-14 NEET exam will be held. It is also said in the petition that NMC/NBE once again issued a notification in which exam pattern and marking parameters have been changed indiscriminately.

While hearing the petition, the Supreme Court has not only castigated National Medical Council (NMC) and National Board of Examination (NBE) but also the health ministry. The court asked them not to behave like a football with young doctors. The court expressed its anger that one months after declaring the date of examination of Super Specialty Exam, notification was issued on the change of pattern of examination.
The Supreme Court ruled, “You have the power to change the pattern of examination, still you must not behave like football with young doctors. We cannot let you play with the lives of young doctors.”

The court asked the government, “From the year 2018, there is a pattern of questions and subject wise distribution of marks. It consists 60 per cent marks for specialization subject while 40 per cent questions are from feeder course. Now, how can you ask 100 per cent questions from medical science?”

The NMC lawyer tried to explain the stand taken by his client. He said that this is done to avoid that more seats of Super Specialty courses should not remain vacant. Clarification was also given on the notification that the matter was under discussion for long and when approval was secured from everywhere then notification was issued. The Court has asked them to come better prepared on October 4, 2021.

Actually, young doctors were preparing for this examination following the pattern adopted from the past three years but sudden change of pattern is a matter of concern for them. Justice D Y Chandrachud said, “You must behave sensitively with young doctors. Justice Chandrachud asked, “Why has this been done after exam notification was issued? Why has this not been deferred till the next year?”

Justice B V Nagarathna said, “Pattern of study of these doctors depends on the pattern of examination, if it is changed at the last moment, they may get confused.”

Call me “Dada”, not “Sir”, Tripura CM Biplab Kumar Deb to employees

Agartala: In what appears to be a step to boost the morale of the government employees, Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb on Sunday asked the government employees to call him “Dada” instead of “Sir”. “Call me Dada, not sir. It enhances the warmth of the relationship”, Deb told a gathering of government employees.

Deb exhorted the government employees of the state especially ASHA and Anganwadi workers of the state asking them not to dishearten as the state government was eager to improve their pay structure.

“I salute the ASHA and Anganwadi workers of my state. The level of dedication that my sisters have shown during the pandemic period deserved applause. I know, they want to hear good news from me and I am assuring you all that this government will not disappoint anyone”, Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb told a gathering of government employees at Badharghat sports school field organized by Vivekananda Vicha Manch (VVM).

VVM has emerged as a big platform of government employees, of late, and Sunday’s public rally was its first big gathering to thank the Chief Minister for the series of steps his government took for the welfare of the employees.

“I know what challenges you people are facing. Nothing is hidden in front of me. I am assuring you all everything will be taken care of in the due course of time”, he added.  Lauding the efforts of government employees Deb said, without them no government office can function.

“Due to the efforts of government employees, people can access the benefits of the state sponsored welfare schemes. But, for a prolonged period the employees did not get their right to do something freely. They were trapped in the clutches of unions. In the previous regime, Left sponsored unions used to enjoy supreme power which had reduced the whole work culture of the state to tatters. In 2018, you people showed courage and voted BJP to power”, said Deb.

“Despite fund constraints, the state government is positively working on the issues of DA and other factors pertaining to the interest of the government employees. Our government has already addressed a number of issues related to financial benefits. The ad-hoc promotion, increment for Group D, Group C employees, regularization of SSA teachers, seventh pay scale, UGC scale for professors, special benefit for LTC are to name a few. All these indicate what we want to do and we shall do what we promise”, the Chief Minister said.

The Chief Minister also asked the officials not to call him “sir” suggesting them to refer to him as “Dada” as it makes the relationship stronger and cherished. The Chief Minister also distributed clothes among children of Badharghat sports school during the programme. State BJP President Manik Saha, Minister Ram Prasad Paul, Minister Sushanta Chowdhury, MLA Mimi Majumder, state BJP Vice President and president of Vivekananda Vichar Manch Rajib Bhattacharjee also spoke on the occasion.
