Hi..Can we leave seat in Neet pg 2020 Telangana state counselling after 3rd round before mop up round...is free exit possible?
Free Exit options is only available for Round 1. It is not available for 2nd, 3rd and Mop Up Rounds. Generally there is no 3rd Round and mop up round is conducted based on the seats available. For example if you are allotted a seat in Round 1, even if you do not join or resign the seat, you will not be penalised for it because of the free exit option. But for Round 2 or Mop up Round, if you do not join the allotted seat, you will have to forgo the security deposit because there is no free exit option there.
