The MCC had concluded the registration process on October 12. It was earlier slated to end on October 11 but was later extended by a day. Candidates who have not occupied a seat in any of the previous rounds of NEET PG 2023 counselling conducted by MCC or through state quota were allowed to register for the stray vacancy round. The last date for choice filling and choice locking was Oct 13. The processing of the NEET PG counselling stray vacancy round seat allotment was conducted between October 13 and 14.
“The Choice filling for the Stray Vacancy Round was delayed since many PG DNB Institutes had not reported the candidates online. Hence, the competent authority has decided to extend the schedule for Stray Vacancy Round of PG Counselling 2023,” read the official notice by MCC.
The qualifying percentile for NEET PG 2023 counselling was reduced to ‘zero’ by the health ministry before the round 3 counselling process began. The decision was taken to ensure that no PG medical seat goes vacant. Almost 2000 PG medical seats go vacant this year.
