In the first round, 136 seats were allotted out of the total 142 at the IGGMC & RI. There are 8 seats up for grabs in the second round at the government medical college as only 134 got admitted in the first round.

There are 7 seats under the government quota vacant at Sri Manakula Vinayakar Medical College and Hospital (SMVMC&H), 4 in Sri Venkateswara Medical College and Research Institute (SVMC &RI) and 3 in the Pondicherry Institute of Medical Sciences (PIMS), data available with the Centac revealed.
