Keeping in mind that 748 seats are still lying vacant in NEET Superspeciality counselling for the academic year 2021, the government has decided to conduct a special round of counselling without any cut-off percentile eligibility to prevent wastage of seats and in the larger public interest as a one-time measure, the officials said.

The special mop-up round II for NEET-SS 2021 counselling will begin on Tuesday, they said. Usually, NEET-PG is held in January and the counselling starts in March. But because of COVID-19 and the delay in the last year's admission process, this year's exam was held on May 21 and the results were declared on June 1, a senior official said.
