NMC added, “All the state counselling agencies are requested to make necessary arrangement for conducting the counselling in online mode, for all rounds including stray vacancy round in private medical colleges, from the academic year 2023-24. No college/ institute should conduct the counselling, including the stray vacancy round, in physical mode.”

The commission reasoned that this will help tackle the issue of seat blocking and complaints or court cases related to NEET counselling.

Recently, MCC released the NEET PG counselling 2023 schedule and accordingly the registration process is set to begin on July 27. Various states including Kerala, Tamil Nadu, Gujarat, and Punjab have commenced the NEET PG counselling process for state medical colleges.
