NEET 2017: Only two rounds of counselling for all-India quota seats in medical colleges
According to the directions issued to deemed universities and state governments, two rounds of counselling would be conducted instead of three.
According to the directions issued to deemed universities and state governments, two rounds of counselling would be conducted instead of three. Common counselling to all-India quota and state quota seats is to be conducted by the directorate general of health services (DGHS) and the state government (or designated authority), respectively.
Giving reasons for scrapping the third counselling, the directions read: “This will ensure that a few seats are reverted to the state quota and also all-India quota seats are filed by students from the all-India merit list only. The students who take admission in deemed universities pursuant to the second round of counselling conducted by the DGHS will not be eligible to participate in any other counselling.”
“Disallowing students who take admission under the all-India quota after the second counselling to vacate seats will stop the practice of blocking seats. However, the real effect will be seen only after its implementation. Not having a third round of counselling by the DGHS for the all-India quota seats may prove to be counterproductive,” said a Chandigarh-based NEET trainer.
