AIQ PG Medical seats vacant after Round 2 reverted to states: MCC
New Delhi: Through a recent notification on its website, the Medical Counselling Committee (MCC) has informed that the Round-2 of All India Counselling got completed on 30th June 2020 and the seats of All India Quota remaining vacant after Round-2 have been reverted to States for further Rounds of Counselling.
Earlier, the counselling body had clarified about the resignation process of Round 2 counselling allotted seats as well as the subsequent eligibility for participating in the Mop-up round.
The clarification comes after the MCC received many emails regarding eligibility for participation in Mop Up Round of Deemed and Central Universities.
Notifying about the same, the authority explained,
The rule position as per the Counselling Scheme is clarified as under:
The Candidates who are allotted seats in Round-2 and do not join the allotted seat can 'Exit with Forfeiture' i.e the Refundable Security Deposit of candidates will be forfeited. However, such candidates can participate in Mop-Up Round by registering again for Mop Up Round by paying the requisite Fee.
The notice further added that the Candidates who join the allotted seats in Round-2, cannot resign from their seats as per directions of Hon'ble Supreme Court of India in W.P(C) No. 267 of 2017 Dar- Us- Slam Educational Trust & Ors. Vs. Medical Council of India & Ors. and will not be eligible to participate in any other counselling. The relevant part of the court order is reproduced as under:
"After the second round of counselling for All India Quota seats, the students who take admission in All India Quota seats should not be allowed/ permitted to vacate the seats. This would ensure that very few seats are reverted to the State Quota and also All India Quota seats are filed by students from the all India merit list only. The students who take admission and secure admission in Deemed Universities pursuant to the second round of counselling conducted by the DGHS shall not be eligible to participate in any other counselling."
