Confusion on Medical Admission continues even after NEET Result Declaration

The result for NEET 2016 is already declared. Out of 7,31,223 candidates who appeared for the exam, nearly 4,09,477 qualified the test. However, there are no Mumbai candidates in the top 10 ranker’s list. Despite of the result declaration, the state merit list is yet to be announced for statewide admissions. This is the reason students and parents are confused about the medical admission process under 15% All India quota as well as statewide admissions. There is no confirmation or notification on how the admissions will be done through NEET score – Whether the state government will conduct the centralized process or if it will be done at an individual college level.

Additionally, parents and students have complained of getting phone calls and messages for medical admission from touts, who are ensuring guaranteed seat in top medical colleges of India like JJ Medical College, GS Medical College(KEM) and others under 15% all-India quota. According to the students, these touts claim to have contacts in central government and the Medical Council of India (MCI) and are demanding about Rs.25 lakhs for a seat. This further added to the ongoing confusion.
