Admission in private medical colleges through NEET - Many candidates who qualify NEET 2019 will end up taking admission in private colleges. So, it is important that medical and dental aspirants know the process of admission in private colleges through NEET. The counselling for private colleges is conducted by the respective authorities, and not MCC/DGHS. For example, if a private medical or dental college is located in Chennai, the State Authority of Tamil Nadu will be responsible for the counselling process. Also, note that all seats in private colleges are generally filled on the basis of NEET All India Rank (AIR). Further, all seats in private colleges are open to all candidates, irrespective of the category they belong to.

Registration - Online registration is the common form of registration, where the candidate has to enter details like name, phone number and email id
Filling of application form - This step includes filling of personal, academic and contact information. Scanned copies of relevant documents, including photographs, signature, and caste certificates should also be uploaded.
Payment of application fee - the fee will vary from one state authority to another. Also, payment is generally accepted online, but draft payment may be also accepted in some cases.
Submission of application form - The completed application form must be submitted before the last date.
Based on applications received by it, the state authority will release a state merit list, which will be the basis of admission. The merit list will be prepared using NEET 2019 scores.
Generally, candidates who are ranked higher are assigned/ select government medical and dental colleges, as fees tend to be lower. That being said some may also take admission in private colleges instead of a government college because the private college is highly rated. For example, CMC Vellore is one of the premier medical colleges in the country, and therefore it would be not a surprise if a candidate prefers it over a government college.
Once a college has been allotted to a candidate, s/he needs to report at the college within the given deadline to complete admission formalities. Or else the seat will be cancelled. At the time of reporting the candidate should bring with them all necessary documents, including NEET 2019 scorecard, NEET 2019 admit card and other prescribed documents.
