Changes in This Year’s Process

The NEET PG Counseling process is going to be starkly different from its predecessors due to some monumental changes introduced this year.

  •  Extra Rounds to Fill Seats: This year, the NEET PG Counseling process shall have 2 additional rounds apart from the AIQ Round 1 and 2. These will be the “Stray Vacancy” and “Mop Up” rounds.

This means that the unfilled seats after Round 1 and 2 won’t revert back to the States but instead, be filled only by the AIQ candidates.

  •  Reservations: While the reservations for the SCs, STs, and PwDs shall remain 15%, 7.5%, and 5%, respectively (like last year), there are changes in that of the OBCs and EWS.

Starting this year, the 27% reservation for the OBCs of the Non-creamy layer and 10% for the EWS candidates is applicable to all seats and not just that of the Central Universities/Institutes.

Another reservation is that of the Unfilled NRI/Muslim Minority/Jain Minority seats. Starting this year, after the exhaustion of all the eligible candidates under this category, the remaining unfilled seats will be converted to “Indian National Seats”. It’s only after doing is that these seats will be reverted back to the respective Deemed Universities.

This conversion wasn’t done last year.

  •  PG DNB Counseling: Unlike last year, the counseling process for the Post Graduate Diplomate of National Board (PG DNB) seats will be carried out by the MCC of the DGHS in the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare.
  •  Stray Vacancy Round:The final i.e. the “Stray Vacancy Round” will be conducted ONLINE this year as opposed to the offline process last year. Also, instead of being conducted by the respective Central University/Institutes, this process will be helmed by the MCC of the DGHS.

This shall be applicable to all the seats under the AIQ in Central Universities/Institutes as well as for the DNB seats.
