Direct admissions through Touts to face immediate cancellation by MCI

education medical dialogues

New Delhi: The Medical Council  of  India(MCI), has given a stern warning to all Medical and BDS NEET qualifiers that those found to be back gate entries into medical colleges or discovered to have got admissions through touts by paying hefty commissions will finally be have their admissions nullified at the hands of the MCI .

The check will happen automatically as the Council is handed over the final list of selected candidates in medical colleges all  over the country, as it is meant to oversee all India admissions to medical colleges.

The Council alert comes in the wake of the rising uproar  in the country that NEET qualifiers are being flooded with messages from ‘touts’ promising them direct admissions for a sum anywhere between Rs. 10 lakh and Rs.1.25 crore.


Any NEET scorer entertaining ideas about skipping NEET counselling, mandatory for joining medical and dental programs, now runs the risk of having his or her admission cancelled.

According to an MCI official such candidates would be caught  by the MCI as it gets lists from all state governments of all students who have appeared for counselling and selected their colleges.

 “Students who get direct admission by paying money to agents or the colleges can be caught easily and we will cancel their admission,” he further added.

While NEET rules hold counselling mandatory for  admissions, complaints have been received from  many NEET qualifiers and their parents  of having received hoards of text messages from agents or touts assuring them of admissions without counselling.

When an HT correspondent, in the guise of a parent  of a NEET qualifier met a few touts, most offered  admissions to well known institutes of  Uttar Pradesh.

“If you pay Rs 10 lakh, we can get your son admitted to any of the private medical colleges in UP,” one ‘agent’ with an office in a posh east Delhi colony said.

The commission amount is meant to be over and above the fee amount. The agent  went a step further, assuring the student and his parent that the admission would be valid, and the ward would be introduced to the Chairman of the private college, who would take the amount in the name of a ‘donation’.

 “My commission is only Rs 2 lakh per admission. If you can bring more candidates, I can pay you half from my share, ie, Rs 1 lakh as your commission,” he offered.

A Central Delhi agent on the other hand went ahead  and ‘advertised’ a seat in a top medical college in Karnataka for Rs 1.25 crore.

However, none of these agents seemed to have any control on government college admission, though a few  claimed to be in a position to influence government counselling as well.

 “If the candidate hasn’t applied for online counselling, he will have to pay Rs 5 lakh extra for getting his name included through the back door,” another ‘agent’ said.

The academia cautioned students from falling into agent traps and risking disqualification at the hands of the MCI.

 “Candidates have to apply for online counselling and then get all documents verified for admissions. After that they have to give names of preferred colleges and if they qualify for admissions in those colleges on the basis of their NEET marks they will be admitted,” the MCI official said.

“This is the only legal way to get admission,” he added.

Last year, 519 students faced  admission cancellation in 37 medical colleges across the country, as they had  gained direct entry without going through the Counselling process. These students are now batteling it in battle to legalize their admissions.

It is believed that some medical colleges are misleading candidates by asking them to take direct admission through management quotas.

 “There is no management quota after NEET was implemented in 2016 and all admissions are through counselling,” an  MCI official informed.

Of the 12 lakh aspirants who  sat for the NEET 2017 Test, 6 lakh have qualified.

The Medical Council of India website has declared  59,570 seats for the MBBS course;while 26,000 seats are  available for BDS aspirants as per the Dental Council of India, that regulates the dental  program.

  1. A HUGE MBBS Admission Racket in Pipeline!
    Delhi University Counselling was clubbed with All India Counselling. Students and parents enjoyed Counselling within the comfort of Home, with 100% transparency perceptible. IP
    University opted for Offline Counselling. Motive could be manipulation of some seats by way of Fake Data entry.
    IP University was expected to display Merit list before Counselling on 25 June 2018. With 26 June ending, students and parents have no clue to Counselling.

    Delhi Police calls citizens to police station either for Bribe or for Encounter. IP University forced thousands of students and parents to queue up in scorching heat justb to be told – No
    Information Available. My friends may have different points of view. My viewpoint is :-
    Just like Supreme Court Justices, IP University has two rival groups – BJP and Congress. A concensus could not be reached on Quantum and Mode of Manipulation.
    Just as Police\’s Bribe/Encounter, Motive behind Student/Parent queue up needs to be extracted. More likely, under-table sale of Admission slips is aleady going on.
