MCI cancels admissions of 519 MBBS students

Thursday, March 2, 2017

New Delhi: The Medical Council of India (MCI) has cancelled admissions of 519 MBBS students enrolled in 17 medical colleges directly and not based on their performance in the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET).

The highest number of violations has been found in Uttar Pradesh by 14 colleges giving direct admission to 481 students. While Karnataka, Madhya Pradesh and Tamil Nadu have one college each with 38 students admitted in total.

The medical colleges defended their move by arguing the counselling process was very slow and filling up seats, through NEET results, by the admission deadline (October 7, 2016) was not possible, reports
