The Supreme Court has ordered the Directorate General of Health Services (DGHS) to extend the admission deadline of the NEET mop up counselling round for admissions to MBBS and BDS programmes at deemed universities till September 7, 2017. Thus the earlier last date of August 31, 2017 stands extended by as many as seven days.

The apex court also noted that no further extension will be given to the deemed medical institutions. Only the candidates who had registered for NEET counselling but were not allotted any seats in any of the previous two rounds can take admIssions through the mop up round of NEET 2017.

A three-judge Supreme Court bench comprising the new Chief Justice of India Dipak Misra, Justice AM Khanwilkar and Justice DY Chandrachud asked the DGHS to upload the admission list on their website and also mail it to all the deemed universities.

 

“Time for mop up round counselling is extended till September 7, 2017. This extension shall only be applicable to the deemed universities and no one else. Any application by any other college or institution seeking extension shall not be entertained,” news agency PTI quoted the bench as saying.

 

The DGHS, which is the counselling body for admissions into deemed (medical and dental) and Central Universities as well as the 15% All India Quota seats, informed the apex court that as many as 5,500 seats are still vacant in the deemed universities. To this, the Supreme Court directed the DGHS to fill these seats from the existing pool of the 55,000 qualified students.
