None, 02 Jan 2017, #NEET

Clearing the confusion over counselling of vacant medical seats, the Supreme Court has directed state governments to fill 178 medical seats-left vacant after state counselling of reverted 15% all India quota seats-on the basis of NEET scores.  The court, further, ordered that the counselling process must be completed by October 7, 2016.

“We may hasten to clarify; the states shall not treat them (vacant seats) as seats which have been reverted to the state quota from All India Quota but fill them by taking the merits in All India Quota. Needless to say the whole thing shall be completed by October 7, 2016,” reads the SC order. The court order came after a write petition filed on the issue.
