hi everyone, i wud like to know if there is any chance to get seat after neetpg in same institution(either field) with my fiancee,that we are giving neet pg 2020 together.

Let me tell you what actually happens.
As we all know the admission process is will be get done through counselings i.e,  online.
college  provides the information regarding, age,grade,caste reservation, qualification percentages etc,
to select the students accordingly  who meet the given criteria.
So, unless you both of them possess the same skills, percentage, grade you both of them can't get selected in the same college.

Even Speaking up with college staff  is not useful.They are helpless.
If the fate supports you and gets Impressed with bond you have chances for being selected.
Keeping a hope is way more better then being fixed
Best of luck

The answer for you question is 99% No.
As we all know the admission process or the student selection process is Done via counselings that means,
AI(artificial intelligence) has been functioned to select the students accordingly the college reputation, scoring and so on things.
So, even if you visit the college and ask them to do, they are helpless.
And the remaining 1% is for the chances you may get.
If both of you score same and gets eligible according to institute eligibility criteria. You Both may get selected in same institute.
So, just hoping to get admission in the same college will be more better rather then being fixed.
Hope this was helpful for clearance of your question. Thank you
