What is Open Quota Counselling?

In some states, only the candidates of the same state can take admission in Government and Private Medical College in MBBS/BDS seats, but there are 13 states in which the candidates from other states can take admissions in Private Medical Colleges in MBBS/BDS seats. These are called Open States. Admission are given on the merit basis on NEET Score. Candidates of Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, Haryana states take admissions under Open Quota because the cut off of Government Medical Colleges goes very high and the fees of the Private Medical Colleges are also very high.
