Only NRI seats will be on offer for OCI & PIO students – Times of India

MUMBAI: OCI and PIO students seeking admission in Indian professional institutes will henceforth be treated on a par with foreign nationals and can seek admission only under the non-resident Indian (NRI) quota. This will translate to fewer seats for such candidates and considerably higher fees than what Indian students pay.
Earlier, Overseas Citizens of India (OCI) and Persons of Indian Origin (PIO) students were treated on par with Indians; they had equal opportunity to compete for seats in government institutes as well as participate in admission rounds of the all-India quota in medical colleges. But from this year, in case of technical education, OCI/PIO students will be considered foreign nationals who will be allotted supernumerary seats and will have to pay higher fees.
Last year, the SC had given a year’s exemption to such students; in May 2022, it refused to extend the rule. The ministry of home affairs’ notification released on Thursday said OCI and PIO candidates participating in undergraduate and postgraduate admissions will be considered on par with the NRI in case of those “appearing for the all India entrance tests such as National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET), JEE (Mains), Joint Entrance Examination (Advanced) or such other tests to make them eligible for admission only against any Non-Resident Indian seat or any supernumerary seat: the OCI cardholder shall not be eligible for admission against any seat reserved exclusively for Indian citizens.”
