Tamil Nadu round 1 counselling details


The round one of the NEET counselling 2021, has come to an end in Tamil Nadu. As per reports, after the first round of counselling which was conducted by the Medical Counselling Committee (MCC), 773 seats remain vacant in government medical colleges in Tamil Nadu, for the MBBS course. 


According the statistics, nearly 15 per cent of MBBS seats were allotted and given up for the All-India Quota (AIQ). Out of this nearly 773 are yet to be filled. The candidates who have finished all procedure and those who has secured AIQ seats reported to the respective colleges and universities on February 3.  The remaining seats will be most likely filled in the second round of counselling. The reason why the seats are vacant may be because the students resigned and didn’t want to take it up, says Dr P Vasanthamani, secretary of the Selection Committee. 


The other rounds like choice-filling and choice locking for the second round began on Thursday and is most likely to go on till Monday. The reporting date for second round candidates has been scheduled for February 27. 


A new rule that was imposed also stated that from this academic year, owing to various discussions, the Union Health Ministry should not make the decision to surrender vacant seats for both MBBS and BDS category. The orders came from the Supreme Court and it was also mentioned that the other vacant seats filling process will be handed over to the MCC and not the general category quota, like always. 


Almost all colleges, including Madras Medical College and Government Stanley Medical College of Chennai also have many unfilled seats, says MCC.
