NRI Admissions: Know Medical Colleges in Haryana
RI Quota in Medical Colleges in Haryana - Non-Resident Indian (NRI) students aspiring to study MBBS from government and private medical colleges in Haryana have the option of NRI admission. Out of total seats of 1050 in government and private medical colleges in Haryana, 62 are reserved for NRI admissions. As per Medical Council of India, 15% seats in private medical colleges are reserved for NRIs. However, in Haryana, a certain number of seats in government medical colleges have also been earmarked for NRI admissions. Pandit Bhagwat Dayal Sharma University of Health Sciences is authorised to conduct counselling for MBBS and BDS admissions on behalf of Directorate of Medical Education and Research, Haryana. Similar to an Indian student, selection through NRI quota is based on merit i.e. student’s rank in National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET-UG). NEET-UG is conducted by the National Testing Agency(NTA). The exam is scheduled to be held on May 5, 2019. All the eight government and private medical colleges in Haryana are affiliated to PT. B.D. Sharma University of Health Sciences, Rohtak which will confer students with the MBBS degree upon completion of the course.
Students must appear for and qualify the NEET exam to be eligible for NRI admission. The score of NRI student is compared to other students applying for NRI admission to determine his/her rank in the state. Students must register for NRI admission by submitting the online application form and paying a fee of Rs 10000. On the day of counselling, students admitted through NRI quota will have to be present for document verification and payment of the fee. In case of instalment payment, a bond (typed on stamp paper and attested by a first class magistrate) is required to be submitted for the remainder of the fee. After the second round of counselling, any seats remaining vacant under NRI quota will go to the NEET qualified eligible foreign nationals and converted to General category seats, if they still remain vacant.

NRI definition for Government and Private Medical colleges in Haryana
NRI definition followed in the state of Haryana is similar to the one defined by the Income Tax Act of 1961. “Non-Resident Indian” is a person of Indian origin who is not a “resident”. This refers to the tax status of a person who, as per section 6 of the act, has not resided in India for a specified period. ‘Resident in India’ requires a person to stay in India for least 182 days in a financial year, or 365 days spread over four consecutive years and at least 60 days in that year. Any Indian citizen who does not meet the criteria as a "resident of India" is a non-resident of India.
Person of Indian Origin (PIO) - is a citizen of any country other than Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Nepal or Pakistan, if he at any time held an Indian passport, or he or either of his parents or spouse were citizens of India by virtue of the Constitution.
Overseas Citizenship of India - is a pseudo-citizenship scheme established because the constitution of India does not permit full dual citizenship. An OCI card, which is a long-term visa with restrictions on voting rights and government jobs, acts as the proof of OCI and is available to certain PIOs.
