Union Health Minister Mansukh Mandaviya on Thursday announced that National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET)-under-graduate (UG) counselling for medical admissions will start from 19 January.

"Dear students, counselling for NEET-UG is being started by the MCC from January 19. You all are the future of the country and I hope that all of you will give a new direction to your career with the mantra 'service is religion'. I extend my best wishes to all," Mandaviya tweeted.

The Medical Counselling Committee (MCC), which conducts the counselling, has released the NEET UG counselling schedule.

Why the delay in NEET UG counselling schedule

The MCC conducts NEET counselling for 15% of seats across the country for medical students. The MCC has said that the counselling process was halted because of the case in the Supreme Court regarding the validity of the EWS quota.

However, the Centre has introduced 27% reservations for OBC and 10% for EWS candidates. This will be applicable to both UG and PG courses.

"As assured by the Ministry of Health to residential doctors, NEET-PG counselling will be started by Medical Counselling Committee from January 12, 2022, following the order of the Supreme Court," Mandaviya had tweeted.
