The Medical Counselling Committee (MCC), on Wednesday, 28 March, announced a retraction of the results it had posted on its website earlier in the day with regard to the seat allocation, owing to an “inadvertent/technical” mistake. The Committee’s announcement was with respect to the NEET’s Medical/Dental seats PG Counselling.

The MCC, in it’s announcement, said that the results “may be treated as null and void”, and that fresh results will be updated as soon as possible. The MCC had retracted the results three hours after it had originally posted them.

The first round of registration for the NEET counselling ended on 26 March. The deadline had been extended owing to technical issues with the software, reported The Indian Express. According to the report, students were facing problems while choosing their colleges and courses.

The MCC’s goof-up follows on the lines of the CBSE’s announcement regarding the re-conduct of the Class 10 Mathematics and Class 12 Economics examinations.

Students and parents across the country took to Twitter to express their dissatisfaction and anger over the MCC’s announcement.
