The National Medical Commission has removed the upper age limit for appearing in the NEET-UG examination.
In a letter addressed to the National Testing Agency NTA, the Commission asked the agency to remove the maximum age criteria from the information bulletin of NEET UG.
The letter said, it has been decided in the 4th NMC meeting that there should not be any fixed upper age limit for appearing in the NEET UG examination. Therefore, the information bulletin may be modified accordingly. It said, further the process for official notification to suitably amend the regulations on Graduate Medical Education 1997 to this effect has been initiated.
The National Medical Commission is the top regulatory body of medical education in the country.
Earlier, the age limit was 25 years for general category candidates and 30 years in the case of reserved category candidates.
