NEET 2022: Counselling process
The NEET counselling is likely to be conducted in four rounds. If in case the seats still remain vacant, additional rounds may be announced. Firstly, all eligible candidates will have to register themselves once the counselling link is activated. Thereafter candidates will have to choose college and course they wish to apply for, based on which and their NEET merit, students will be allocated colleges.
After the first round of NEET counselling seat allotment list is announced, if a candidate gets a college/course of choice, they need to submit the fee and verify their documents to book a seat. If not, they can float the seat and wait for the next round. Vacant seats will be up for grabs in the next round. In the second round, there will be no option of upgradation to the mop-up round.
Candidates who have joined the allotted seat in round two of NEET 2022 counselling will not be allowed to resign or take part in any of the further rounds of counselling. Candidates who have not joined the allotted seat by second round will be eligible for further rounds of counselling subject to forfeiture of the security deposit and fresh registration only in the mop-up round.
