A few days ago, in a major relief to DrNB trainees and DNB SS candidates, the NBE had revised advisory retracting the much anticipated indefinite mandatory training extension.
Earlier than that, the NBE had clarified that all Final Year DrNB Super Specialty trainees of the 2018 batch will have to continue to discharge the duties in this time of National exigency as may be prescribed by their hospitals, for the period as mandated as under:
"DrNB Super Specialty trainees, till fresh batches of DrNB Super Specialty trainees for 2021 admission session have joined at respective hospitals or counseling for NEET-SS 2021 is concluded, whichever is earlier."
However, the NBE has now decided that all Final Year DrNB Super-specialty trainees who were admitted in 2018 academic year will have to continue to discharge their duties at their respective institutes of DrNB training, till 15th August 2021 or completion of their DrNB Final practical examinations, whichever is EARLIER.
