The Medical Counselling Committee (MCC) has released a notification on its official website regarding the change in Nationality of the NEET 2020 candidates. The notification is released ahead of the NEET 2020 Counselling Sessions so that candidates are well informed and could avail the facility if they are eligible. To avail the NRI quota, candidates need to have relevant documents which they must mail to the concerned authorities for the prescribed deadline.
What Does the Official Notification Say
According to the notification, the candidates who want to change their Nationality from Indian to NRI are eligible to avail the 15% All India Quota for medical seats if they qualify the entrance examination.

- Relationship of NRI with the candidate
- A duly notarized affidavit from the sponsorer that they will sponsor the entire course fee of the aspirant.
