40 candidates for 336 NRI quota medical seats

Faridkot, November 15

All 24 medical and dental colleges in the state are set to face a problem in filling the NRI quota seats in the MBBS and BDS courses with only a few NEET-qualified candidates applying this time.

Baba Farid University of Health Sciences will announce the admission list for 160 MBBS and 176 BDS NRI quota seats on November 19. However, only 40 candidates have applied for the 336 seats.

Of the total 40 NRI applicants, some have scored as low as 150 marks out of 720 marks in the NEET.

About 19 of the 40 NRI candidates have scored less than 300 marks in NEET.

For a Punjab resident with 500 marks in the NEET, getting admission to a government medical college is a pipedream, but an NRI candidate with 200 marks has a high chance of making it. An NRI candidate has to pay $1.10 lakh as tuition fee for an MBBS seat. — TNS
