“NEET 2017 notification is officially announced on 31st January 2017”
NEET 2017 (National Eligibility cum Entrance Test) is a single window entrance exam for 52,304 MBBS & BDS seats in the private & govt. medical colleges of India (except AIIMS & JIMPER). As per Hon. Supreme Court order from 2016 the AIPMT is now changed to NEET. There were lot of orders by Supreme Court in the NEET 2016-17 academic year admission process and much clarity has come now for the NEET 2017-18 academic year.
A special note on the admission process via various counseling has been added on 24th June, 2017. Please note the following points as mentioned below for the admission counseling process via NEET:
1. 15% seats admission in any government medical college in India (except AIIMS, JIPMER and colleges located in Andhra Pradesh, Telangana and J&K) will be taken via AIQ counseling held by DGHS centrally (NEET).
2. 15% seats admission in all 34 private deemed university in India (+ religion, minority) will be taken via AIQ counseling held by DGHS centrally.
3. Rest 85% seats admission in govt. medical college will be taken by state counseling held by government. These 85% seats are only for the state domicile students.
4. Rest 85% seats admission in private deemed university in India will be either taken by them individually or via the state counseling where it is located. In these 85% seats anyone from outside state can also apply. Domicile is not required. BUT these 85% seats also include management & NRI quota (approx 15%).
5. Private colleges (NOT Private Deemed University) which is affiliated to a state govt university in any state will take admission for its 100% seats ONLY via state govt. counseling. Most of the states will block these states for their own state domicile students only (e.g- Maharashtra). But there are some non-govt. quota seats as well in some private medical colleges (like in Karnataka) for which the admission might be open to outside State students as well. This will be clarified in few days.
