During the online application procedure, candidates must pay the requisite registration cost via the payment channel. According to the candidate’s category, there are separate fees for SC/ST/Cat-1/PWD, General/2A/2B/3A/3B, candidates from outside of Karnataka, and NRI/OCI/PIO/Foreign Nationals.
The online application procedure is broken down into multiple parts, allowing applicants to complete their information, update the application, and print out a draft version prior to submitting the completed form.
Checking of Documents
Verifying your documents is an important part of the admissions process. The NEET-PG 2023 / NEET MDS 2023 Admit Card & Score Card, SSLC or 10th Standard marks card for date of birth, MBBS / BDS marks card provided by universities, and qualifying degree certificate are only a few of the papers that candidates must present for verification.

Categories of Seats
The four categories of seats for PG Medical and Dental programs are G (Government Seats), P (Private Seats), N (NRI Seats), and Q (Other Seats). Candidates applying for seats should be aware of the specific qualifying requirements and reservation regulations for each category.
Multiple Iterations in the Allocation Process
There are several rounds involved in the seat allocation procedure. The second round comes after the first, and if necessary, a mop-up round is held to fill empty seats. In the choice entry step, candidates must carefully specify their priority of selections regardless of the number of seats shown for a specific course.
Instructions for Candidates In-Service
Individuals affiliated with particular medical services and organizations are referred to as in-service candidates. They have a different quota, and in order to be eligible, a few requirements must be satisfied. As of March 31, 2023, candidates in-service are only allowed to be 48 years old. They must meet all other requirements and receive a No Objection Certificate (NOC) from the head of the relevant department.
A significant milestone in the path of Karnataka’s medical aspirants is the second round of seat allocation.
