In a major development, the Union Health Ministry in consultation with Medical Council of India has reduced the qualifying marks, i.e., for NEET PG cut off by 7.5 percentile, to be applicable for 2017 academic year, only. This move is likely to benefit around 10,000 post graduate medical aspirants. Moreover, the NBE has also released a revised NEET PG result and cut off scores for 50% state quota seats. However, there is no change in 50% All India Quota MD/MS and PG Diploma seats.
