The Delhi High Court on Friday refused to postpone the Foreign Medical Graduate Examination (FMGE) screening test scheduled for June 18 due to the prevailing COVID-19 situation in the country.
Justice Amit Bansal dismissed a plea by the Association of MD Physicians seeking postponement of the exam. “I am sorry. I am not inclined [to postpone the exam]. Dismissed. The detailed order will follow,” said the judge.
The association said there are a limited number of cities being notified as centres for the test and a large number of candidates will be forced to travel without having received even one dose of COVID-19 vaccine.
