1.       How did NRI category come in picture in medical admission in India?

Since 2000, government of India has taken decision to privatize the higher education. With this policy, they have privatized the medical education. In 2000, there were around 150 medical colleges and by 2012, India has more than 300 medical colleges. In 2000 very few were the private or trust run medical colleges. Majority were in government hands. But with this privatization policy lots of new players came in picture and started medical colleges in india. But the self sustained medical colleges are very costly to run. So the fess for admission was very high. So there was dissatisfaction form public and if fess will controlled the dissatisfaction form management. In this scenario they have decided middle way, in which the government has given 25% of seats to college management, of which 15% seats for Non-Resident Indian (NRI) or foreigner students and 10% for management quota. Remaining 75% will be filled by local or central government as per state or national competition. Thus NRI admission quota came in picture.
2.       What is NRI category admission in India?
As per Medical Council of India (MCI), the NRI category is exclusively for private medical colleges who are not taking any grant from government. They are not in any government run medical colleges. NRI means the non-resident Indian who have not done 12th or 10+2 from India. He may be Indian origin or may not be Indian origin. So any foreign student wants to study in India can get admission under this category.
3.      What is the fess under NRI category?
The fess under this category will be decided by local state government fess committee or central government fess committee. This is very depending upon the college to college. But grossly they are between 1 lack US dollar to 1.5 lack US dollar for full course.
4.       What are the admission criteria for NRI medical admission?
Usually the admissions under this category are based on merit of 12th exam or 10+2 exam of respective country. The student must have biology main subject for 12th or 10+2 exam. They have to get accreditation form National Board New Delhi. This is first preference in this category. But any Indian student wants to study, they can apply for NRI-sponsor category. This NRI-S category is also coming under this admission. But the colleges are usually making two merit list, first is for exclusive NRI or foreigner students list and second is for NRI sponsor students. NRI-S means the students who have any relative out side India and wants to sponsor his/her studies.
 At present there is no entrance test for this category, as colleges getting few applications. But reputed colleges are getting very large number of application even at higher fees.

5.       As my ward is doing 12th outside India and studying CBSC, can he/she get admission under domestic quota?
As per UGC guidelines, a candidate who has studied the qualifying examinations (11th and 12th) outside of India (even if affiliated to CBSE) must apply under NRI category only and NOT under any domestic category. But if the candidate has studied the qualifying examinations (11th and 12th ) within India ( even if affiliated to foreign educational boards) can apply either under domestic category or under NRI sponsored category. They can apply only under any one category and not under both categories.
6.       As NRI, can my ward take entrance exam in India?
No, Only students form India and studied 11th and 12th in India can appear for local entrance.

During counseling, the college verify the documents and check the willingness to join course. This is simple counseling. No need to worry.
