In Maharashtra state counseling, all rounds (up to institutional/stay vacancy round) have a one-time registration and choice filling.

Counseling Rules:-

1) Registration or choice filling begins with the first round.

In the second round, candidate seat will be upgraded based on the higher option they selected during choice filling. If they are satisfied with this allotment and do not want to upgrade this seat further, they must fill out a status retention form in the college at the time of admission; otherwise, he/she will not be considered for upgrade in subsequent rounds. If they do not receive a seat allotment in the first round, he/she will have to wait until the second round.

Second Stage Counseling :-

Following the first round of counseling, the second round of MCC is held to fill the vacant seats and the seats transferred to the state. This counseling is also available online. In this case, the first-round seat can also be upgraded. If he/she joined the seat in the second round of MCC, they will be unable to participate in the second round. If they do not receive a seat allotment in this round, they will have to wait until the Mop Up round.

Counseling for Mop Up round 1,2 :-

Mop up round 2 is held for all vacant seats in government and private colleges from Mop up round 1. This is the final round for private medical colleges. Following this round, all vacant Private MBBS seats are transferred to the concerned college, and these seats are filled by the college through the Institutional round. Following this round, these seats are filled by the counseling authority conducting Mop up round 3,4, 5,6,7……… to fill the vacant seats of MBBS in government colleges.

Hospital of R.C.S.M. Government Medical College Kolhapur

The hospital was originally named King Albert Edward Hospital to commemorate the visit of the Prince of Wales in 1875. On March 9, 1881, Sir James Fergusson, the governor of Bombay at the time, laid the foundation stone. With the blessings of the regional ruler Chhatrapati Shahu, this was made possible. In 1881, this project was completed. After Shahu returned from England, the hospital underwent many changes, including offering free treatment to all patients. 

In 1946, the hospital was renamed Chhatrapati Pramilatai Raje Hospital (CPR) in honour of Chhatrapati Pramilatai Raje, the royal family of Kolhapur’s daughter-in-law. The hospital was officially affiliated with the newly established Rajarshee Chhatrapati Shahu Maharaj Government Medical College in the year 2000.

About 600 students are trained in undergraduate and postgraduate medical courses at the medical school. The institution also maintains a nursing school. The hospital has 18 wards and 665 beds, with 378 staff and honorary physicians, 6050 nursing staff members, and 1566 paramedics on staff.

These institutions, which are primarily funded by the Maharashtra government, provide virtually free services to the underprivileged sections of society.


 After completing their MBBS, all students must complete a year of mandatory rotatory internship. Following that, students typically apply for post-graduate studies. 

 Internships are available to almost all students, with the exception of 2/3 of those who must repeat a year. Placements in the MBBS course cannot be compared to other MBA courses; rather, experience in internships is important, and RCSM GMC provides many opportunities for this.
