NRI quota not to exceed 15 percent in PG medical courses: Karnataka HC

Bengaluru: An Interim order by the Karnataka High Court  giving directions to the Karnataka Examination Authority (KEA) and the state government  disallows the granting of more than 15% seats under regulation 9A of the Postgraduate Medical Education Regulations, 2000 for NRI quota, for the academic year 2017-18.

A Justice H G Ramesh headed division bench also confines the NRI quota to the children of NRI’s or their wards reports TOI.

The High Court was responding to a petition filed by Dr Tariq Iqbal, a Bengaluru resident  and a post graduate aspirant who claimed that both the KEA and state government have not provided ‘NRI quota’ in accordance with law in the matter of admission of students to postgraduate medical courses.

The petitioner contends that all close relatives of  non-resident Indians are to come under the ‘NRI quota’.

  1. who are joined in NRI batchelur MBBS passed out should be given admission in PG course. The should not charged like 100 core fees. it should be reasonable and they should be avoided from the NEET entrance exam. NRI students means direct NRI parents and the children should be studied in GULF and not in india.
