Maharastra CET cell is conducting counselling for the 85% seats in Private unaided and minority medical/dental colleges on the basis of NEET-UG score. As per the eligibility criteria students of Maharashtra domicile can apply for these 85% seats. But after the introduction of NEET-UG 2016 for all private medical/dental colleges, some institution sought that students from other state should be also accepted and the state domicile criteria should be cancelled.
State Govt. argued in the Bombay high court that students of Maharastra should be only allowed to take these seats as some other states have the same domicile policy and deny Maharastra students. Bombay High court after taking into account all the matter declined to interfere in the state domicile policy. So, now students from other states will not be admitted and the result which was sheduled for 3rd september, will be published soon. There are total 15 and 23 Private unaided and Minority Medical and Dental Colleges, respectively.
