The NEET PG qualified candidates will be allowed to register online until March 24, 2018, up to 5.00 PM followed by the choice filling and choice locking session. MCC has made few changes in the registration process, as per which the candidates will be required to register afresh for the second round of counselling. This can be beneficial for aspirants who miss participating in the first round of the counselling process.

Unlike last year, the counselling process for AIQ, Central and Deemed Universities will be conducted simultaneously. The only difference is that MCC is responsible for conducting two rounds of AIQ counselling whereas for Deemed and Central Universities there will be three rounds of counselling. The seats left vacant after the last rounds of counselling will be sent back to the respective authorities who can conduct their own counselling process to fill the vacancies.

The candidates applying for the counselling of AIQ or Central Universities will have to make a payment of INR 1,000 whereas, for Deemed Universities, the fee is INR 5,000.
