NEET 2017 – Available Counseling Options

After lot of controversies and litigation’s, NEET 2017 results which was supposed to be published on June 8, finally released the results on June 23. While many thought it will be end of the long ordeal looks like it is the beginning of a new confusion.

Government colleges, self financing colleges, deemed universities, AIQ, state quota, minority quota, NRI quota, management quota …………….the available options are mind-boggling to a first timer. So, what are the next steps ? Here we will try to give a primer, as simple as possible :

NEET 2017 – counseling

All the NEET qualified candidates will be able to participate in the following counseling schedules

All India Quota (AIQ)  counseling15% of the seats in all the Govt medical colleges across India (except AP, Telengana and J&K) is available in the AIQ quota. No domicile restriction. Any Indian citizen student is eligible for any college in this quota. In a major shift, the eligibility cut-off for AIQ counseling which used to be in the range of 460-470 marks is now changed to the NEET qualifying marks as the cut-off. This means anybody who qualified for NEET will be able to participate in the AIQ counseling.

State Quota Counseling – 85% of the seats in the State Govt colleges is made available in this counseling. Apart from govt colleges, Govt quota in the self financing colleges or Private colleges also come under this. Domicile restriction is there and only natives of the particular state can participate in the counseling. Counseling for Management quota in the self financing colleges is also done by the state govt authorities. For the management quota domicile restrictions will not apply.

In TamilNadu, this 85% is further apportioned as 85% for state board students and 15% for CBSE students. However several cases has been filed in court and the implementation of the above will be based on the court ruling.

Deemed Universities or Private Universities – All the deemed universities or private universities across India will have a centralized counseling . This will be done by MCC the same entity which does the AIQ counseling. Here no domicile restriction apply and any student across India can participate.

In addition to this AFMC counseling and ESI counseling also will be done by MCC.

    • It depends on the case SC will hear on Friday (7th July). If it is in favour of TN govt i.e if the admission is based on 85:15 ratio, for state board students and CBSE students, then you can surely get a seat. If the ruling is against that of state govt, there is a slim chance of getting a seat in the tier 2 colleges or in the govt quota of self financing colleges.
