The Medical Counselling Committee (MCC) on Tuesday withdrew the results of the online counselling for the first round of MBBS admissions under the all-India quota in government colleges and all seats in deemed universities across the country, hours after publishing them.
The results that were declared around 10.45pm on Monday disappeared from the website (https://medicalcounseling.nic.in/UGCounselling) by around 11am on Tuesday.

MCI & Ors., w.r.t the Wards of Insured IP) of ESIC.” It said a fresh result for Round-1 of UG Counselling 2019 would be released soon. “Generation of provisional allotment letter will be possible only after the final result is uploaded on the MCC website.”
Most students and parents were upset. “I was wondering why they published results with allotment letters. It is extremely disappointing that the committee can be so ill-prepared when thousands of students and colleges are anxiously waiting for the results,” said S Arvind Kumar, whose son was awaiting the results.
Government colleges across the country surrender 15% of their undergraduate medical seats to the Centre for a centralised online admission process. The MCC under the Directorate General of Health Services receives applications and allots students to various colleges based on merit in NEET scores and student’s choices.
