    Subject: Request for guidance
    Respected Sir,

    Kindly advise as to whether a candidate desirous to seek admission in MBBS
    (Code 103) in the medical colleges falling under IPU needs to mandatorily
    register/apply separately apart from NEET 2017. This query emerged from
    the perusal of advertisement of IPU as they are accepting fee of Rs. 1000/-
    from candidates for MBBS Code 103 but specifically mentioning that no exam
    will be conducted for this course. It is never been mentioned clearly as
    to whether a candidate have to mandatorily apply separately besides NEET if
    desirous to be considered for medical colleges under IPU.

    With regards,

    Yours faithfully,

    Anil Kumar Dubey father of aspirant candidate
