The National Eligibility cum Entrance Test Undergraduate (NEET UG) counselling 2022 registration process has started in Maharashtra. The candidates can apply for NEET UG 2022 counselling on the official website- cetcell.net.in till 22 October.
Maharashtra Common Entrance Test (CET) Cell released the information brochure for the admission process for health science courses such as MBBS, BDS, BHMS and BAMS etc. The provisional merit list is scheduled to be out on 25 October. Candidates can pay their NEET UG 2022 counselling registration fees till 23 October, 5 pm.
Additionally, candidates are not required to pay a security deposit unlike the one introduced in PG (Post Graduation) admissions this year. The candidates will be receiving fresh choices of colleges to be filled in each round.
The regular registration fee will continue for UG admissions, where the candidates applying for government colleges will have to pay Rs 1,000 and Rs 5,000 for private colleges. Additionally, candidates who are willing to apply for both will be liable to pay a total registration fee of Rs 6,000.
According to the security deposit clause in PG admissions, a candidate has to pay Rs 25,000 to apply for government colleges, and Rs 1 lakh to apply for the government as well as private medical colleges. While it is refundable, after admission confirmation, if a candidate fails to confirm admission to an allotted seat in round two, they will be losing the entire money.
For the UG admissions, if a candidate is allotted a seat in the second round, they will either have to take it or leave it. There will be no option for reservation. Candidates expecting a better seat in the third round might have to take a risk of leaving an allotted seat. With an addition of 100 new seats — as the National Medical Council approved Osmanabad government medical college last month, there will be a total of 4,750 seats, out of which, 15 per cent will be for the All-India quota.
