Delayed release of revised cutoff 

Candidates who meet the revised cut off percentile are now eligible to participate in the ongoing counselling procedure. However, the first round of counselling has already been concluded and the first seat allotment list of NEET MDS counselling had been released on March 27, 2019. The revised cut off may allow more candidates to participate in the counselling procedure but it has clearly missed an entire counselling session. The second round of counselling is scheduled to begin on April 5, 2019, but the release of revised cut off may cause some delay in it. Since 2017, the authority has failed to release the revised cut off on time.  The authority has provided a provision to send queries regarding counselling, if any, to email id: .
