Even as NEET 2016 result is being challenged in the Supreme Court, the Medical Counselling Committee (MCC) has declared the seat allotment result after the first round of counseling. However, in what could be fallout of the NEET controversy and the consecutive delay in counselling, the seat allotment result this year reflects a fall in the MBBS cut off rank for the General and OBC category by nearly 500 ranks compared to the previous year.
