The Medical Counselling Committee (MCC) has extended the last date for reporting of the National Eligibility Entrance Test – Postgraduate (NEET PG) counselling 2023 stray vacancy round to October 25. Candidates who successfully made it to the merit list need to report to the colleges between October 17 and 25 for the document verification process. Earlier, the last date to report to the colleges was today, October 20.
Candidates can check the notice on the official website at mcc.nic.in. “Candidates are advised to download their Provisional Allotment Letter from MCC website and proceed for reporting,” read the official notice by MCC.

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 did not occupy 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,” MCC had said earlier. Besides, 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.
