NEET 2016: Deemed medical/dental institute admission in Maharashtra on basis of first selection list to be completed before October 5

Directorate of Medical Education & Research (DMER), Maharashtra has published the selection list for first round of admission in vacant medical/dental seats of deemed university institutes. The medical aspirants need to report at the allotted colleges before 5 pm on October 5, to complete their admission. Aspirants need to visit the respective colleges with all the relevant documents and certificates for verification. They need to carry their NEET All India Rank scorecard as well.

With an All India Rank of 3596, Ravi Kant is at the top of the first merit list published by DMER. He has been allotted Bharati Vidyapeeth Deemed University Medical College, Pune, where 45 seats need to be filled through the common counselling procedure. The intake of the college is 150 for an academic year for the MBBS course. The number of vacant seats in the deemed medical/dental institutes in Maharashtra have also increased from the last published list of DMER on October 3, 2016. By October 3, the total number of vacant seats were 820 (434 medical and 386 dental) in the state. The centralized counselling is now being conducted for 449 medical and 406 dental seats. The Mahatma Gandhi Missions Medical College, which had earlier declared that there are only two seats vacant, is now offering seven seats through the common counselling.

The increase in the vacant seats has resulted due to the surrender of seats of the already admitted students in one or more deemed university institutes before September 16. The Supreme Court, in its order dated September 28, had said that it wouldn’t interfere with the medical aspirants who have already taken admission in deemed medical/dental institutes before September 16.

The unclaimed seats after the process of admission will be in offer through the second merit list, which can be expected after 5 pm on October 5. The admission procedure for all the deemed university medical/dental institutes must be completed before October 7, according to the apex court order.
