  1. There was time limit given for NRI seats as much for other catagories.It is expected that those aspirants must have turned up and procured the seats .Just because the fee is more other legitimate students are put to disadvntage of getting seat.So the filling up of seats is a must by A catagory as the time is running out.Same class and same course many types of fee also creats animosity among students.

  2. nri Is not plucking the lacks from the tree to pay for the medical seat after NEET. The students can get admission for LLB, Architect etc and they can shine after 4 years and another 2 years for PG or MBA. after that they can pick up a suitable job and they can grown in good salaries. if they opt for medicine the fees is looting by the management and others and they have to study 5 1/2 years then and then internship and they have to write NEET and another looting for PG with 3 years after exam what salary govt will give. 10 to 12 year study and govt or private think they have to serve the society with free after spnding 2 core or more as NRI is not mad to think now. there is not a change i dont think no one will opt for this course MBBS/MD and after 5 years there is a shotage of doctors in the markt to look after the patients. Govt and Ministers need to look into it.
