MCC Stray Vacancy Round NEET Counselling: 2,463 MBBS, BDS seats up for grabs
New Delhi: There are a total of 2,463 MBBS and BDS seats vacant in the NEET Counselling stray vacancy round across the country.
The information to this effect comes from the seat matrix released by the Medical Counselling Committee (MCC) after the completion of the mop-up round session of NEET Counselling on 29th December 2020. Stray Vacancy Round will be conducted in offline mode only as per the schedule
According to the List of seats remaining vacant post-Mop-Up Round, out of the 2,463 seats, few are also available in central institutes such as AIIMS and JIPMER.
