Candidates seeking state quota seats in their respective state government colleges should fill out the application form when their state counselling bodies release it.

NEET 2024 Private College seats

Since there are fewer domicile requirements and students can apply to private college seats in most states, the NEET 2024 dilemma for most students is solved in part due to the private college seats.

Candidates must fill out application forms from respective state counselling authorities. There are, however, some private colleges that hold aside a certain percentage of seats for the state quota, which only candidates from those states are eligible to apply for.

Seats with special eligibility requirements in MBBS and BDS

Beyond those already described above, additional seats are available at AFMC, Pune, and in ESIC colleges reserved for Insured persons (IP) wards. DGHS, the body responsible for admissions to AIQ and Deemed/Central Universities, conducts initial MBBS admissions in AFMC, Pune, and all IP wards to ESIC colleges for MBBS/BDS seats.

Applicants interested in AFMC admission and IP ward quota seats at ESIC will be able to apply separately through the DGHS website for their respective counselling processes. Following are the general, special requirements that must be met for IP wards to qualify for ESIC and AFMC, Pune.
