In the meeting, many steps to incentivise students and pass-outs of medical and nursing courses to join Covid-19 duty were taken, reported news agency ANI quoted government sources.
The government is likely to delay NEET 2021 PG exams further and utilise the MBBS pass-outs studying for it in the battle against coronavirus.
"Decisions may include delaying NEET and incentivizing MBBS pass-outs studying for it to join the COVID-19 duty. The decisions may also include utilising services of final-year MBBS and nursing students," a government source added, according to news agency PTI.
Sources said that that medical personnel involved in Covid-19 duty are likely to be given preference in government recruitment as well as a financial incentive.
The details of the meeting will come out on Monday.
Several states have already roped in final year medical students as coronavirus infections spike.
