3. Colleges will either upload a form on the website and email or print it for submission at the college or they may put up a notice asking students to visit the respective college to fill up the form.

4. Students need to carry attested copies of original documents with them at all times. The following are some of the documents to be carried:

  • Recent color photographs besides the one attached to the form

  • Carry sufficient money as you may be asked to pay a stipulated fee during form submission (a sufficient sum of money would be Rs 2000/-)

Important Note:

Important NoteStudents should note that if their parents are working in Gulf countries, then they are entitled to this special NRI quota. However, it should also be noted that all colleges having NRI quota may not have the exclusive Gulf NRI quota. Therefore, you must check in advance with the college with regards to this quota. In addition, if you belong to a special category of NRI quota, then you can apply in the General NRI category, too. However, this will reduce your chances of gaining admission into a particular college, as the number of students will be higher in the General NRI category.

This sums up the admission process and the fee structure for NRI students who want to obtain admission into Indian Engineering colleges.
