Over 15% seats over and above the ‘approved intake’ can be reserved under PIO/FN/CWIG quota, which amounts to 373 in top engineering colleges of Punjab.

For applying under FN/PIO/CIWG quota, the student must either be a Foreign National or Person of Indian origin or Overseas Citizenship of India card holder or Children of Indian Workers in Gulf Countries.

  • “Foreign National” means the Citizen of Countries other than India who is not of Indian origin as defined under OCI or PIO.

  • 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 proof of OCI and is available to certain PIOs.

  • CIWG stands for Children of Indian Workers in Gulf Countries. CIWGC is a scheme generated by the Ministry of India for the children of Indian expatriates in Gulf countries looking for admissions in India. Candidates seeking admission under this category must have passed 10+2 from a Gulf country
