The official notification from the Supreme Court released recently states that counselling (after NEET 2017 results) conducted by Directorate General of Health Services (DGHS) will now also include Deemed Universities as they have an All India Character. The Deemed Universities also include the ones run by religious and linguistic minorities.
DGHS to Undertake Counselling For AIQ Seats:
The NEET Counselling for 15% All India Quota undergraduate MBBS/BDS seats will be undertaken by the Director General of Health Services (DGHS). The Medical Counselling Committee will soon be releasing the schedule of counselling after the NEET 2017 result declaration. As far as counselling at state level is concerned, the states would be releasing the same soon. Medical colleges in a particular state have 85% seats for the native students and 15% (All India Quote) seats for the students from other states. For instance, a student from Delhi wants to pursue MBBS from a college in Mumbai, he will be given a seat from 15% seats of total seats of that college. The DGHS will conduct the counselling for All India Quota. Students can check all the participating medical colleges (state wise) here.
State Govt to Undertake State Wise Counselling:
While the counselling for the AIQ Seats (15% in each medical institution) for MBBS 2017-18 will be conducted by the DGHS, the state counselling for the rest of the seats i.e. 85% in government and private medical institutions including those run by religious and linguistic minorities with the state university affiliation will be undertaken by the state government or the education authority appointed by the state government. Counselling will be processed in two phases indicating that the seat allotment will happen twice.
