Andhra Pradesh High Court has issued an interim stay on NEET PG, but the case is now in Supreme Court. The hearing of the NEET PG case was for hearing on 22 Nov but is postponed to 27 Nov 2012. As a result no decision could be taken regarding NEET PG. As no order issued by Medical Council of India (MCI), NEET PG will be conducted as scheduled, he said. He also informed that the state government has no right to stop the exam.
As MCI issued a NEET PG registration notification, state government of Andhra Pradesh and private medical colleges in AP approached High Court requesting exemption from NEET PG. AP govt requested that they will join NEET PG from 2014. High Court has issued interim stay on this. The case is now in Supreme Court for hearing.
As now the case postponed to 27 Nov, no judgment is given by supreme court and MCI also did not inform anything to AP government.
MCI decided to conduct a common national entrance test for postgraduate courses in medical and Postgraduate diploma courses in medicine admissions. The notification was issued on 23 Sept 2012. It is scheduled to be conducted from 23 Nov to 06 Dec 2012. Every day there will be two online exams.

There are only two exam centres in Andhra Pradesh which are Hyderabad and Visakhapatnam. Those who could not reserve a slot in these two exam centres chose other states such as Maharashtra, Karnataka and Tamil Nadu. There are few students who choose far away states to appear for the exam.
