The Directorate of Medical Education and Research (DMER) has decided to ask for an extension to fill up the handful of vacant seats. In all, six seats still remain unfilled under the CET quota.

While the last day of admission was on Friday , the DMER managed to fill 46 MBBS seats and 28 BDS seats under the NEET exam quota. When the day closed, six seats under the CET quota remained to be filled.

On Monday , the DMER is planning to request the Supreme Court for an extension to fill the remaining vacancies. A plea was made seeking time till October 10. But due to the festive season, the DMER felt that an extension till October 15 would allow them to fill all the seats.

Meanwhile, the seat allocation list for the other courses is out. “However, in case of Ayurveda, permission for 20 colleges has not yet come,“ said director Dr Pravin Shingare. Experts said once the nod for the 20 colleges comes in, there will again be a lot of reshuffle among candidates.

However, the DMER aims to complete admissions to the allied health science courses by October-end.
