Previously on September 12, 2016, the Kerala High Court had directed MCC to conduct as many counselling rounds for central counselling as required to fill up all seats under ‘15% All India Quota’ across the country so that vacant seats are not transferred to respective states. The Kerala HC had said that due to transferring of vacant seats process, eligible candidates who have qualified for NEET counselling lose out to state students.
