In respect of a plea which had been filed by the UP Unaided Medical Colleges Welfare Association, the Supreme Court has rolled an official notification stating the use of NEET merit list to be used to fill the vacant seats. It has been widely noticed that a large portion of the seats at these colleges remain vacant. To be precise, 41.95 percent of the total seats for the post- graduation courses for the academic session of 2018-2019 have not been filled in the private unaided medical colleges of the state.

As per the officials, a similar kind of dispensation can be carried forward in the other states on their desire. As the cut-off date was over which was May 18, the responsibility of the Director General of Medical Education in Uttar Pradesh to allot the seats to the students least by May 31 is realised.

Aspiring Decision For Students Seeking Admission in Medical Colleges

This proposed suggestion has been found as one of the most appropriate ones to solve the issue of the vacant seats at the private medical colleges as well as is a commendable initiative which shall be offered to the aspiring candidates who have their names in the NEET Exam 2018 merit list but could not get admitted to any of the medical colleges for their post-graduation. This option is not available for the students who have already gained admissions to leave their existing seat and apply for readmission.
