NRI Definition for Private Medical Colleges in Bihar
To be eligible for NRI admission, a candidate must be an NRI or PIO or OCI. NRI definition followed in the state of Bihar 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.
