BENGALURU: Non Resident Indian (NRI) students, who want to get into undergraduate professional courses, are most likely to be allowed to write CET from 2018, according to KEA.
But first, the department of higher education has to bring an amendment to the Karnataka Professional Educational Institutions (Regulation of Admission and Determination of Fee) Act, 2006.
A senior official from KEA said, “Before submitting a proposal to the government about including NRI students, we have to study the matter and propose amendments. Considering the legal options, the same will be submitted for approval.”
Under the existing system, NRI students cannot appear for CET. For admission into professional courses, they are dependent on the government’s 15 per cent NRI quota, under which they have to pay higher fees.
Every year, at least 500 students seek admissions under NRI quota.
