The seats of the government medical and dental colleges have been divided in 15% All India Quota and 85% State Quota (except for erstwhile Jammu and Kashmir where all the seats are in control of the state authorities). The counselling for remaining 85% State Quota seats and private universities will be conducted by various state authorities where the respective colleges are located.
NEET 2020 counselling conducted by MCC will be held in two rounds for AIQ seats, while a mop-up round will also be organised to fill the vacant seats in Deemed/Central universities, ESIC colleges and AFMS institutes. The allotment of seats in NEET UG counselling 2020 will be done on the basis of All India Rank, preferences of colleges as well as courses, seats availability, reservation criteria and other aspects.
The mode of conduct of the counselling is online or offline depending on the rules laid down by the state conducting bodies. Candidates who will qualify the NEET 2020 exam by securing equal to or more than the cutoff percentile will be eligible to participate in the counselling process. In order to apply for the state counselling processes, candidates will be required to fulfill the domicile rules of the particular state as applicable.
Steps in counselling vary from state to state. While the All India counselling is completely online till the allotment is done, the state wise counselling slightly varies when candidates have to get their documents verified to establish thier domicile status. This is the case with most states with some exceptions. Also to be noted is the fact that other state students dont have eligibility to apply in many states but in some states where they can, the seats open are private unreserved ones only.
