MCC has clearly stated that only those candidates can participate in NEET SS 2018 Counselling for stray vacancies, who are already registered. Also, these candidates should not have been allocated seat in the Round 1 or 2 of counselling.
Candidates who cannot participate for the counselling are those who have were allocated a seat earlier or who join the allocated seats.
