NEET PG 2018 Entrance Exam Rules of Private Colleges


NEET PG 2018 Entrance Exam Rules of Private Colleges: NEET-PG is an eligibility-cum-ranking examination prescribed as the single entrance examination to various MD/MS and PG Diploma Courses as per Section (10) of Indian Medical Council Act 1956.

As per the new guidelines issued by the government for admissions to the Post Graduate Medical & Dental courses in private medical colleges, only 10% seats will be reserved for “Institutional Preferences”. Whereas the rest 90% seats will be filled through NEET PG (National Eligibility cum Entrance Test).

Out of the 100% seats offered for admissions intake, 50% are to be filled through NEET PG and NEET MDS examinations. The remaining 50% seats will be filled through the management quota. The Committee of Admissions and nominee of private colleges, as a member, will be the conducting authority for admissions through management quota.

The 50% management quota seats are further subdivided into three categories. The subcategory 1 includes 15% seats that are to be filled by the foreign candidates, NRIs or Sponsored NRIs who have appeared for NEET PG. The Sub category 2 includes 25% seats filled through a general NEET merit list and only the left 10% seats in sub category 3 will be kept reserved for institutional preferences.

The university will have to prepare a seat matrix every year, which will include the ratio of seats reserved under the Convener and Management Quota. The seat metric analysis will be prepared before the counseling process begins. Any additions made to the existing number of seats as permitted by the MCI/DCI will also be included in the counseling process.

The process of seat distribution is elaborated below:

Seats filled through Quota Rotation

In case one or two seats are available in the specialty, that particular seat will be filled through management quota for the current academic year 2017-18 or through convener quota for the year 2018-19. The allotment of the last seat among the others will be altered in the subsequent years.

In case there is a seat available in a degree programme and the other is in the diploma programme, degree programme seat will be filled through the management quota and diploma seat through convener quota. The process will be repeated in the subsequent years following the current year’s sequence.

Unfilled Seats

In case some seats are left unfilled even after the final phase of counseling, it will be filled through the management quota. In case a candidate admitted through Convener Quota fails to take admission, the seat will then be filled through the management quota.

There is no provision of reserved seats for SC/ST/OBC candidates under the management quota. But it is mandatory for the minority institutions to admit 70% students from the minority community, retain the minority status.


The Grievance Committee

The university authorities have also set up a Grievance Redressal Committee responsible for the admission process. The committee will comprise of a dean from a Medical/Dental College, one eminent person from the Public Service and a member nominated by the University. The committee will be responsible to determine the merit, entitlement of admissions, cancellation of seats, fee refunds and return of documents.

Why NEET PG scores are important:

NEET PG scores will be an essential requirement for admission to MD/MS courses in institutions controlled by state governments, universities, deemed universities and medical colleges/institutions.

NEET as a methodology for entrance has been introduced by an amendment to the Indian Medical Council Act and Dentists Act and, accordingly, the scores of NEET-PG will be valid for institutions under state government, universities, and deemed universities which fall in the ambit of these Acts.

Aspirants are required to note that they can go through college wise breakup for general, OBC, SC AND ST Categories. The counseling for various categories of State quota seats will be conducted by the concerned State Medical Directorate/Counseling authority(s) of the State/UT/Private Universities/Medical College/Institutions. Total number of Seats in the MDS Program across all 240 Dental Colleges (including those in Andhra Pradesh, Jammu & Kashmir, and Telangana) is 5896 as per the Official data. The total number of MDS seats available through national counseling is 2656.
