NEET 2017 counselling has witnessed a stretch as per the latest guidelines issued by the Supreme Court. The new notification which has been released by the Supreme Court has acted as a great sight for relief for all the students who had cleared the NEET 2017 that is the National Eligibility Cum Entrance Test.
The prior date for the mop-up round counselling was fixed on 31st August’2017 but owing to the state of violence in the state of Punjab and Haryana, the deadline was missed which now has further been extended to 7th September’2017.

NEET 2017 | Extension in counselling deadline 

As per the direction of the apex institution, the deadline for the final counselling of all the students who have cleared NEET 2017 and are seeking admissions in the BDS (dental) courses as well as the MBBS (medical) degree in deemed universities only was extended.
All the candidates who have registered themselves for the mop-up round which is the concluding stage of the counselling in regard to NEET 2017 and have not been allotted with any seat in the previous counselling rounds will only be considered in this round.

5000+ Seats Vacant For Admission Through NEET 2017 

In addition to the notification released, it further has been directed by the court to maintain a ratio of vacant seats to the ratio of the students who have qualified the NEET 2017 examination. This means that with a view to maintain the ratio of 1:10, 5,500 seats should be filled up from the pool of 55,000 students who have cleared NEET 2017. It is necessary to maintain the ratio as per the urge of the counsel for the deemed universities who grant admission to the students clearing NEET 2017.

Counselling Deadline for NEET 2017 Extended | Know Why

States of Punjab and Haryana missed out on the counselling deadline which was fixed to conclude the admission procedure in the MBBS and BDS courses as per NEET 2017. The states missed out on the deadline because of the havoc which was created by the followers of Dera Sacha Sauda Chief, Gurmeet Ram Rahim who was sentenced to a 20 years imprisonment.
In the wake of the riots which happened in these states, the Supreme Court has extended the deadline. Whereas, no other state except these will get the benefit of the extension.
