“It has come to the notice of Medical Counselling Committee (MCC) that the following ‘Application-cum-admission Form for MD/MS/DNB/MDS Course of 50 per cent Government Seat Quota/ Nominated Quota (Copy attached below) is circulating in the social media wherein they have claimed that seats will be allotted on nomination basis by payment of fees under nominated/state quota,” read the official notice.
The notice further cautioned applicants to be aware of any correspondence about allocation of seats sent by unidentified individuals on behalf of the MCC.
The committee highlighted that it does not offer admission through nominations, and the forms are fabricated. The fake admission form claimed that PG medical seats will be allotted upon payment of fees under the nominated quota.
Candidates and their parents have been advised by MCC not to spread or forward the fake form to their contacts or on social media. "Strict legal action might be initiated if someone is found to be circulating this or any such fake form," according to the statement.

The committee also instructed candidates not to share the password they were given for the purpose of counseling with anyone else. Any fake website or agent should be notified to MCC immediately, and the candidate should file a FIR.
