When it comes to private colleges there are two types, self-financing colleges or deemed universities.
For self-financing private medical colleges, the respective state counseling authority is responsible for allotting MBBS seats. 50% of the MBBS seats in self-financing colleges are allotted to meritorious students based on their reservation category with annual tuition fees of Rs 4 lakhs. These seats are called as state quota seats. The rest 50% seats in self-financing colleges are divided as 35% for management and 15% for NRI. For non-minority colleges, the government quota seats goes up to 65% of the total MBBS seats available in that college.

When it comes to deemed universities, students from any state is eligible to get MBBS seat as counseling is conducted at All India level by medical counseling committee. 85% seats in deemed universities come under management quota and the rest 15% seats are allotted to NRI students.

So total of 20215 seats are available for Tamilnadu students (Refer table-2) as of Sep-2020. Out of this 7550 seats are available only for native Tamilnadu students.
Even though, 4400 MBBS seats are available for Tamilnadu students, the tuition fee varies to greater extent depending on the quota. The table below outlines tuition fee details for each quota.

The expected NEET 2020 cutoff for Tamilnadu government quota depends on two factors.
The first thing is the NEET 2020 question paper difficulty level. As the question paper difficulty level is little bit easier compared to the last year, the Tamilnadu NEET cut off is expected to increase for most of the reservation categories.
Last year 1.4 lakh students participated in NEET 2019 exam. Majority of these students appeared in NEET 2019 were repeaters. This will further increase the NEET cut off for 2020. So overall, we expect the NEET 2020 cutoff to increase by 30-40 marks for all reservation categories.
