Government warns of action against those blocking AIQ Medical seats
Ministry of Health and Family Welfare (MoHFW), Government of India/Medical Counseling Committee (MCC) has warned participants of All India Quota PG Medical Counseling, against seat blocking.
It has been informed that MoHFW/MCC have been receiving lot of complaints from students regarding an active participation of some groups of students who are likely to block AIQ seats in the second round deliberately for financial gratification without intention of joining them.
Authorities have warned that this amounts to a criminal offence and would be viewed seriously. Such students will be identified and if credible evidence of seat blocking by cartelization is found, legal action will be taken against them.
MoHFW/MCC has clarified that 1000 students have not joined after first round of Medical PG Counseling and that they have been identified. Their future course of action during second round will be monitored closely by the Government.
Other candidates have also been requested to identify such candidates and report their Roll No/ NEET Rank to the MCC if and when they are aware of this issue.
Resignation allowed: MCC has also given direction to college authorities to accept the resignation in offline mode of students who want to resign from their allotted seats of first Round of All India Quota and send the student’s resignation as well as seat vacancy to MCC, so that such seats can be taken in further Rounds of Counseling. This is based on the requests from students.
