Maha: 196 MBBS seats under institutional quota still vacant after first mop-up round counselling
Maharashtra: Almost 196 MBBS seats under the institutional quota are lying vacant in the state of Maharashtra even after the end of the first mop-up round of medical admission. At the end of the common admission round, it was seen that almost 90% of the vacant seats are under the 15% institutional quota.
The seats under the institutional quota are usually expensive and it can cost up to rupees 35 lakh to 40 lakh per annum. Most of these seats are lying vacant even after the first mop-up round of counselling.
The Medical Council Committee has extended the deadline for admission to medical institutes by two weeks, i.e. until January 15. In these coming weeks, MCC will deal with the stray vacancy rounds to re-allot the vacant seats to interested candidates. However, the vacant seats under the 15% institutional quota will not be up for grabs in the stray vacancy round.
