The lockdown situation imposed because of the COVID 19 pandemic is yet not over in all parts of the country. But despite that, the Medical Counselling Committee (MCC) has made a mandatory decision. All the medical students must physically report at the reporting centres. The reporting process for the second round of NEET PG 2020 counselling will begin on June 16.
Those medical students to whom the MCC has allotted a seat in this round must report at the colleges. They must carry all their original documents for the admission process with them.
MCC NOTICE REGARDING NEET PG 2020 COUNSELLING
A notice on the MCC website announced that because of the COVID 19 outbreak, there is an urgent need of doctors. They need more doctors for the management of patients in the hospital. Because of this, the committee made it mandatory for all the students to physically report at the reporting centres for round 2 of the NEET PG counselling procedure. Those students who were allotted a seat in the first round of NEET PG 2020 counselling are also required to report physically at their allotted college from June 16.
“The candidates who joined their allotted seat of Round-1 in Virtual/ Offline mode and would like to continue on the allotted seat of Round-1 should also report physically from 16th June till 22nd June 2020 along with their original certificates which will be verified by the admitting college to confirm their admission failing which their Seat will deem to be cancelled. They can also join their duties from the date of Physical Reporting,” said another MCC notice.
The MCC has advised all the medical institutes to prioritize the outstation students regarding the provision of hostel facility. The Committee has also advised the outstation students to contact the allotted college authorities in advance concerning the Quarantine rules, and local administration guidelines of the state/city before beginning to travel.

REPORTING MADE AN ‘ESSENTIAL SERVICE’
The government is recognizing the reporting of doctors to the allotted medical or dental colleges through NEET PG Counselling 2020, as an ‘Essential Service’. The government will consider the allotment letter as an equivalent to the curfew/e-pass during their travel to the reporting centres. Along with the allotment letter, they must carry a copy of the DO letter from the Health Secretary, MoHFW. The students must also download the ‘Aarogya Setu App’. This is because having the app can be mandatory in many colleges and different areas.
The Committee has asked the medical and dental institute authorities to treat the candidates sympathetically in case they fail to produce some documents, except the important documents. The mandatory documents required for admission are the caste certificate, disability certificate, allotment letter and student’s ID proof. The colleges will provide provisional admission to the students in case they forget to bring any other document.
There is a shortage in the number of medical professionals. The number of COVID 19 patients are increasing day by day and the doctors are under a tremendous workload. Because of this, the candidates will be required to join duties immediately after the completion of their admission procedure. And therefore, the reporting process will be offline only and not online.
