The Medical Counselling Committee (MCC) has released the complete counselling schedule for MBBS and BDS seats. The four rounds of the counselling will commence on January 27 and end by March 16. Medical and dental colleges in Punjab offer about 2,500 MBBS and BDS seats.

Keeping in view the limited time available for conducting counselling, institutes/colleges have been directed by the MCC to treat all Saturdays, Sundays and gazetted holidays as working days.

The MCC has also announced the counselling schedule for the All India Quota (15 per cent MBBS and BDS seats in government medical colleges) and that for All India Institute of Medical Sciences, Jawaharlal Institute of Postgraduate Medical Education and Research, Armed Forces Medical Services and for Colleges of the Employees’ State Insurance Corporation. Counselling for these institutes will be conducted by the MCC in four rounds that will begin on January 19 and end on March 22.

After over 10 months delay in admissions to MD/MS courses for the present academic session due to the pandemic and prolonged litigation, the MCC had already started the counselling for AIQ postgraduate medical seats on January 12.

The counselling for the state quota MD/MS seats will begin on January 20 and is scheduled to finish by March 6.

The entrance test (NEET-PG) for admission to MD/MS courses for 2021-22 session, earlier slated for January last year was first deferred to April and then to September.

The MCC said there would be four rounds of counselling for the AIQ seat, unlike two rounds last year. —
