This year, the NEET PG 2023 examination was held on 5th March 2023. Although earlier NBE had clarified that the NEET PG 2023 candidates must complete their mandatory one-year MBBS internship on or before March 31, later it was charged after hundreds of students became unable to fulfil the eligibility criteria of completing the MBBS internship within March 31. Despite the deadline being extended to June 30, 2023, several candidates remained ineligible.

Later, providing relief to the candidates, the Union Health Ministry extended the last date of completion of the MBBS internship to August 11 and the BDS internship to June 30. The ministry said that the decision was taken considering the future of over 13,000 MBBS students who were not eligible for the NEET PG 2023 exam due to the delayed internship.
