  1. In the counseling process, the seats to be filled by open (UR) competition would be filled up first, wherein the candidates would be called for counseling based on merit alone irrespective of whether they belong to UR, SC, ST or OBC.
  2. Next, reservation categories like SC/ST/OBC candidates will be counseled to fill up the seats earmarked for them in their respective categories.  During this process, if a candidate belonging to SC/ST/OBC who had taken admission under open competition, opts for other institution of his/her choice for which he or she would be eligible as per the rules of reservation, the seat vacated by him or her in open (UR) competition shall be filled with a candidate from the same reservation category only, in order of merit. The process of counseling adopted by AIIMS, New Delhi is in line of Hon’ble Supreme Court’s Judgment in case of Samta Aandolan Samiti & Anr. Vs. Union of India & Ors.

Note :

All reserved category candidates who qualify in the open (general) merit list shall necessarily attend the counseling for open category seats and shall exercise his/her option and then if, he/she desires to opt for a different institution in his/her respective reserved category, he/she may attend the counseling meant for that reserved category.

Provided :

  1. If he/she is not present or if present, fails to or refuses to take a seat in open category, he/she shall not be allowed for attending the counseling for reserved seats.
  2. He/she cannot opt for institution under reservation, if he/she had already opted the same institution in open category.

1. In the counseling process, the seats to be filled by open (UR) competition would be   filled up first, wherein the candidates should be called for counseling strictly by merit alone till the last unreserved seat is filled, irrespective of whether they belong to   UR, SC, ST or OBC.

2. The counseling for reserved category seat (which will also be strictly by merit) would commence only after filling up of all the unreserved seats (i.e. open category seats).

3. If a meritorious reserved candidate belonging to SC / ST / OBC category, who has taken   an unreserved seat in any institution after attending the open merit counseling,   subsequently exercises his/her option to join a different institute in the reserved   category counseling, the seat so vacated by this candidate would be available to next meritorious candidate belonging to that particular reserved category only.  In other words If SC/ST/OBC candidate gets a seat in any institution  under the unreserved category and if he/she opts different institution under reserved category of his/her choice the resultant vacated unreserved seat shall be allotted to same category   candidate in order of merit. i.e. The vacated seat of meritorious reserved category would be immediately added to the seats available under that reserved category in the institute he/she  had opted during counseling for UR seat.

Note : For example - if a SC meritorious candidate who has initially opted a X institution from open category, vacates a seat in open category because he wants to take  Y institution from reserved category during his counseling in reserved category, the same seat (i.e. UR seat of X institute ) which is vacated by him/her shall be made available to the next SC candidate in order of merit.

4. For allocation of seats, candidates are required to be present in person. Candidates   will exercise their choice of the Institute when called during the counseling as per their rank in respective category.  Choice thus made will be final.
