Kerala High Court directs MCC to conduct NEET counselling until seats fill up

Kerala High Court directs MCC In a noteworthy development in the NEET counselling process, the Kerala High Court has directed the Medical Counselling Committee (MCC) to conduct as many as counselling rounds to fill up all seats under ‘All India Quota’ (15%) across the country. Surprisingly, the decision contradicts an earlier order by the Supreme Court to conduct only two rounds of counselling through NEET scores.

The Kerala HC’s order came after a medical aspirant filed a petition for filling up all the 3,084 MBBS seats through All India Quota so that vacant seats are not transferred to the respective states. Seats which are not filled under the All India Quota after the final round of counselling are surrendered to the respective states. Hence, students who have qualified for NEET counselling and are eligible for admission lose out to state students. In 2015, despite three rounds of counselling, 875 seats were transferred to states and were filled up through state quota seats. This year 19,325 have qualified for NEET Counselling and after the first round of counselling over 1,800 seats were left vacant. MCC will release the final number of vacant seats on September 20, 2016.

Like the Supreme Court, Kerala High Court has also directed MCC to finish the NEET counselling process by September 30, 2016 so that the classes can start as per schedule.
