Admission to MBBS programme: All stakeholders, including central authorities, state authorities, and medical colleges, have been instructed by the National Medical Commission to adhere strictly to the counselling schedule established for UG MBBS programs for the academic session 2023-24.
“Any counselling carried out by the mentioned authorities beyond the prescribed schedule will be deemed invalid. Students admitted through such counselling will be discharged immediately,” the NMC added.
The NMC observed that a number of states, including Maharashtra, Bihar, and West Bengal, had carried out NEET UG counselling after the deadline of September 30. Furthermore, it stated that any admission or provision of counselling after the deadline would be in contravention of both the NMC’s notice and the Supreme Court’s rulings.
