All-India Medical Admission Process to Commence on July 20

The Directorate General of Health Services’ (DGHS) Medical Counselling Committee (MCC) has announced that the counselling process for medical and dental courses in India will tentatively begin on July 20.

The schedule released by the MCC pertains to the online counselling for NEET-UG in seats under the all-India quota, deemed universities, central universities, all AIIMS institutes, and JIPMER. While students can start registering from July 20 and filling their choices from July 22, participating institutes will verify the tentative seat matrix on July 20 and 21.

Although the centralised counselling process was expected to include state seats as well, it will remain voluntary for the first year. The Ministry of Health and Family Welfare is in discussions with state counselling authorities to ensure a unified and transparent admission process.

However, the notification lacks clarity on the schedule for state admissions, causing confusion and concerns among parents and students. The compressed timeline for the counselling process raises worries about the potential difficulties faced by parents and the possibility of meritorious students missing out on their preferred seats.

The Ministry official clarified that DGHS handles only the all-India quota seats, and the NMC is expected to announce the state schedule separately.
