Only NRI seats will be on offer for OCI & PIO students

MUMBAI: OCI and PIO students seeking admission in Indian professional institutions will now be treated at par with foreign nationals and can take admission only under the Non-Resident Indian (NRI) quota. This would translate to fewer seats for such candidates and significantly higher fees than Indian students. Earlier, Overseas Citizen of India (OCI) and Person of Indian Origin (PIO) students were treated at par with Indians; They got an equal opportunity to compete for seats in government institutions as well as participate in the admission rounds of the All India quota in medical colleges. But from this year in case of technical education, OCI/PIO students will be treated as foreign nationals who will be allotted additional seats and will have to pay higher fees. Last year SC had given relaxation of one year to such students; In May 2022, it declined to expand the rule. The home ministry notification issued on Thursday said that OCI and PIO candidates participating in undergraduate and postgraduate admissions will be treated at par with NRIs who appear in “All India entrance tests like National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET). ), JEE (Mains), Joint Entrance Examination (Advanced) or such other test to make them eligible for admission against any NRI seat only or against any additional seat: OCI cardholder against any seat specially reserved Will not be eligible for admission. For Indian citizens.”
