Seats of Deemed Universities also have an All India character, say Supreme Court. Hence, after declaration of NEET Result, counselling conducted by DGHS will also be for Deemed Universities, including those run by religious and linguistic minorities. State counselling bodies need to comply with this notice and same has been published on several state counselling websites.

15% All India Quota Counselling will be by DGHS

Directorate General of Health Services (DGHS) shall conduct NEET Counselling 2017 for 15% All India Quota seats. Candidates who obtain qualifying marks, for 15% AIQ, shall be eligible for this counselling. Details of NEET Counselling 2017 can be seen at under the heading UG Medical Counselling, after declaration of NEET Result 2017.

The order further states about state counselling.

State Counselling for NEET 2017 MBBS Admission 2017-18 will be by state authorities

Common Counselling for State Quota seats in Government as well as Private Medical Colleges including colleges / institutions run by religious and linguistic minorities affiliated to State Universities shall be conducted by the State Government or the authority designated by the State Government.

Another thing made clear by the announcement / order is that there will be two rounds of counselling. In other words, seat allotment will be done twice.

Fee payment will be done to state authorities who forward payment to college

When a student gets admission in MBBS through common counselling done by government need to pay demand draft towards fee payable, to admission / counselling committee. They will forward DD to respective college.

As per order, “The necessity for including the above-mentioned requirement has arisen as it has been time and again noticed that when students report to the college after the counselling they are refused admission by the colleges on some pretext or the other and it is shown by the college as if the student never reported to the college for admission. If the Demand Draft is deposited by the admission / counselling committee then there would be no scope for colleges to refuse admission to any student.”
