Few media centers have replied back saying they would consider the news if found good enough. The Congressmen have said that they will go through the problem and respond. IAP President have responded saying they are already considering the situation. I havent found many Indian therapists responding to the situation though there had been overwhelming support and actions for the same from the Philipino PT community and the government.

Our sites analytical data shows that deluging amount of searches are made on 'FSBPT' recently from India but we could find little reactions to it on the internet.

Thank you for updates Robin.

Oh yes, it is not that Indian PT's are aware of the issue, but then an action is lacking.

The issue was raised in Lok Sabha during last week of august and the HRD ministry replied that it have asked Indian missions in the US to take up with the matter. No further details is known.
It is also understood that few organisations too have joined in to write to FSBPT about the matter including IAP.
There is also not much update regarding the Filipino governments supposed meeting with the US authorities. I myself is in the process of setting up a personal meeting with the local congressman.

I went to US congressman Solomon P Ortiz's office today. Though i couldnt meet him in person since he was not available at the office, I did explain the situation to the Staff in charge. He did verify the situation my going to FSBPT website and also made a call to their office.
His view is that the Board is an independant agency and cannot be done much through his office though he still can help find a way through this matter. He has taken my application and said will get in touch back in a day or two updating about the matter.

As was expected, FSBPT came out with their update about the NPTE yrly exam this thursday[30th sept]. The update was though more than expected with the Board deciding to conduct the NPTE yrly twice a year for 2011 and 2012 atleast. The schedule for the exam process and timeline have been set in advance except for the fee details. This update is for sure putting on a smile on a lot of PT's who were affected by the Board action earlier.
The FSBPT website have updated the information as:
The NPTE-i (formerly NPTE-YRLY) will be offered twice in 2011 for PT candidates: May and December. The NPTE-i is the alternative form of the National Physical Therapy Examination that is designated for candidates who received their first professional degree from Egypt, India, Pakistan or the Philippines (restricted countries). The creation of the NPTE-i was a result of pervasive, ongoing security breaches by significant numbers of graduates of physical therapy schools from the restricted countries.

The NPTE-i will be like all the other forms of the NPTE. The PT version will be 250 items and candidates will have five hours to complete the exam. The NPTE-i will provide a fair assessment of entry-level competence. It is being prepared using the same review procedures and will adhere to all of the same quality standards that apply to all other NPTE forms.

Plans for exam administration for 2012 for candidates in the restricted groups will be announced in 2011 but it is worth noting that the goal of FSBPT is to offer the NPTE-i at least twice during 2012.
