Rajasthan resident doctors have decided to continue their strike to expedite NEET PG 2021 Counselling till their demands are met.

The resident doctors all across the country were overworked due to the delay in National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (Postgraduate) (or NEET (PG) Counselling 2021 as they were waiting for new doctors to join the PG courses and support them in providing the health care facilities. There is a nationwide protest going on to expedite NEET PG 2021 Counselling. The protest was initiated by FORDA ( Federation of Resident Doctors’ Association).

Jaipur Association Of Resident Doctors (JARD) are also on strike for the same. Resident doctors in Jaipur declared a statewide strike on Monday and stated that until the government accept their demands they will continue the strike indefinitely.

JARD Facebook tweet on December 5 reads, "All Resident Doctors Association of Rajasthan has announced a complete boycott in the online general body meeting tomorrow 6/12/2021 at 8 pm after the state government has ignored their demands Even after 4 days of giving its 4-year-old demands to the state government, the government has not shown interest in it, due to which the frustrated and angry resident has taken this decision. It is known that resident doctors have been protesting for their demands in different ways in phase order for 7 days continuously. But the state government has not yet shown interest in even listening to the far-away problems if they have to solve their problems."

Shiksha.com had reported earlier that the Jaipur resident doctors were overburdened as they had to operate 66% of their total strength. The hospitals are facing a shortage of staff due to the delay in the NEET PG 2021 Counselling.
