The National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET), formerly the All India Pre-Medical Test (AIPMT) is an entrance examination in India for students who wish to study undergraduate courses (MBBS) and dental courses (BDS, MDS) in government or private medical colleges and dental colleges in India. The undergraduate NEET (UG), for MBBS and BDS courses, is currently conducted by the National Testing Agency (NTA), which provides the results to the Directorate General of Health Services at the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare.

The government has taken a landmark decision to increase 2750 seats of MBBS in 25 new medical colleges. This addition will be effective from the academic year 2019-20. However the existing medical colleges had been struggling to find faculties and staff, So it would be a difficult task for new colleges. Now the total number of seats in MBBS would rise to 70,991. This decision has brought a big relief to all the medical aspirants wishing to pursue doctor as career.

Given  below the total number of government colleges and government MBBS seats through NEET 2018 in India.
