DNB Courses: Transfer JULY 2019 seats to January 2020 Session, NBE tells Hospitals

New Delhi: With the National Board of Examinations (NBE) scrapping one of the bi-annual exam for DNB Post MBBS courses, the examination body has now asked its accredited hospitals to transfer the seats remaining after the July admission session to January 2020 admission session.

The confirmation to this effect comes via an official notice uploaded on the official website of NBE which clearly states that in continuation of the NBE notice dated 25-04-2019 whereby it has been notified that the July admission session for DNB Broad Specialty courses has been done away with, the NBE accredited hospitals are hereby informed that the admissions to DNB Broad speciality (Post MBBS & Post Diploma) Courses against 2019 July admission session Broad Specialty seats shall be done in 2020 January admission session counselling.

The notice goes on to add,

................................ Advertisement ................................

Accordingly, all July admission session seats accredited with NBE for DNB Broad Specialty Courses for a particular year shall be carried forward to the January admission session counselling of the respective next year.

Medical Dialogues earlier reported about the scrapping of DNB CET for Post MBBS courses, only one session from 2019. The decision implied that there will no examination from this year for the July admission session for DNB Broad Specialty courses. Further NBE has clarified that admissions for the January session of DNB Broad speciality courses will be done on the basis of NEET PG examination only.

1. NBE has been maintaining two academic sessions for admission to DNB Broad Specialty (post MBBS) courses – January & July.

2. The admission for DNB Broad speciality courses for January admission session is carried out by utilizing the merit list of NEET-PG. NBE has been conducting a separate DNB CET in June / July every year for admission to July academic session.

3. It has been decided that from 2019 onwards, there shall only be a single admission session for DNB Broad Specialty courses i.e. January admission session. The allotment of DNB Broad Specialty Courses to candidates for January admission session shall be done through merit-based counselling utilizing the merit list of the corresponding NEET-PG.

4. The July admission session for DNB Broad Specialty courses has been done away with. Accordingly, NBE shall not be conducting DNB CET in June/July from 2019.

5. Candidates participating in counselling for admission to PG Medical courses for 2019 academic session are requested to make a note of the above.

  1. All the affected must immediately unite and approach courts for adding of JULY 2019 vacancies in the third round of current counselling process untill it is too late,

  2. The above decision, in the form it is being implemented, is against the larger interests of public in general and the DNB candidates / aspirants in particular, for the following reasons :

    (i) The DNB seats which were to be filled up through DNB/CET (June/July 2019) will be filled up through NEET/PG 2020, thus the ultimate availability of such large number of specialist doctors, on completion of course will get further delayed by at least Six months.

    (ii) The DNB candidates / aspirants, who would have started training based on July session each year will also suffer as their completion of course will get delayed by Six months each year, leading a personal loss for the remaining life.

    (iii) As per data provided by NBE, despite best efforts of the Government, there has been an increase in the number of DNB seats to the tune of only 593 during NEET/PG 2018 session to NEET PG 2019 session. A number of proposals of various Government Institutions / Hospitals for substantial increase in the DNB seats has been in pipeline over the years but continue to stuck in various procedural delays within the organization/institution or that involved in seeking nod from NBE. In such a situation, cancellation of DNB-CET July session 2019 and postponement of filling up of such already sanctioned seats ( which would be more than one thousand) to January 2020 session ( rather than pre-poning it to ongoing counseling session of DNB being undertaken by NBE itself), will be against larger public interest as well as that of the prospective medical specialists.

    (iv) In the Notice dated 26.04.2019, issued by NBE, it is again stated that “The seats of July 2019 admission session shall be carry forwarded to January 2020 admission session. As the counseling for January 2019 admission session is in progress, it is not operationally feasible to include the seats of July 2019 admission” . In this regard, it may be kept in view that there has been practice of adding the newly created seats in the ongoing counseling exercise and this practice was followed last year also. The ongoing Couselling schedule of NBE envisages choice filling for second round upto 29th April and for third round upto 20th May 2019 (5:00 p.m.). Even thereafter there will be a final round during 18th June 2019 to 21st June 2019. Thus there exists sufficient time for taking necessary steps for adding these vacancies in the ongoing counseling process. As such, NBE is requested that all the DNB (Broad-speciality) seats of July 2019 session may please be added to the ongoing counseling session based on NEET/PG 2019.Otherwise affected doctors have to unite and file court case for justice.

  3. At least conduct one year course for Pg Diploma holders in order to save one year loss of the students.

  4. At least conduct one year course for pgdiplomaholders to get converted to Md/Ms to save one year loss

  5. Huge Corruption again with bog r what ever.. All docs of 2017-2018 batch affected by this move,,they can\’t do pdcet nor PG dip can be converted to md/Ms?what the hell is wrong with Indian medical education?
