Giving a major relief to domicile candidates seeking admission to MBBS course through NEET counselling, the Supreme Court on Wednesday ordered to give preference to medical aspirants from the state by maintaining status quo on the allotment list released on October 2.

“The apex court made it clear that the students who have already completed the counselling process, held until September 30, should not be disturbed and that the list released on October 2 based on the process stands valid,” Madhya Pradesh’s additional advocate general Purushaindra Kaurav said.

Directorate of medical education (DME) said the admission process would start from Thursday following the court order.

“Like before, we will follow the court order and start the admission process from Thursday. The choice filling for the unfilled seats will start after assessing the status,” director of medical education GS Patel said.

Meanwhile, chief minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan directed the DME to double the strength of officers and employees involved in counselling so that the whole process could be completed by October 7. At present 1000 officials are engaged in the admission process.
