Allow PG Medical Admission to EWS candidates after changing category: MCC tells medical colleges
New Delhi: Through a recent notice, the Medical Counselling Committee (MCC) has instructed the medical colleges on allowing admission to EWS candidates who have been allotted seats in UR category.
According to the authorities, the MCC is receiving many representations from EWS candidates who have been allotted seats under General category. Some of the colleges are denying admission to such EWS candidates who are not having EWS certificate.
In this regard, the MCC has now instructed the medical colleges to allow admission to such candidates after changing their category from EWS to General since the allotted seat is of General category.
The provision of changing the category of the candidate is available on intramcc portal for colleges.

Earlier, the MCC 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 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."
