Today, the plea has been filed in Apex Court seeking a Special Stray Round of counseling to allow the enrolled candidates to participate in vacant seats available after the conduct of a stray vacant round of All India Quota.
The Bench held by Justices MR Shah and Aniruddha Bose adjourned the plea for June 8 and directed the counsel members to serve an advance copy of the petition to ASG Aishwarya Bhati and the Central agency.
The petition also sought for directing the MCC to provide the exact number of vacant seats after the conduct of a stray vacancy round of AIQ.
The plea was filed by the doctors who appeared in NEET-PG 2021 and participated in rounds 1 and 2 of All India Quota (AIQ) Counselling and State Quota Counselling which was followed by All India Mop-Up and State Mop-Up Rounds.
The plea also states that in order to avoid wastage of seats, an additional round of counseling was conducted for exams such as INICET and NEET SS.
“That in various examinations including INICET, efforts are made to ensure that there is no wastage of seats. In INICET, spot on option is given to the candidates for the remaining seats. Spot on option was also followed till last year by National Board of Examination for remaining vacant seats in DNB courses,”
