Many students who have completed their 10+2 and are eligible to secure a seat through the Undergraduate NEET exam often find themselves overwhelmed and confused. It is disheartening to see that even those who have obtained good marks cannot secure a seat, while students with average scores manage to secure a seat in a UG MBBS program. The main reason for missing out on a seat is the lack of awareness about the current seat allotment process. Despite having a higher budget, many students waste an entire year due to a simple mistake. We aim to provide comprehensive guidance and an easily understandable overview of the seat allotment process. It specifically targets candidates who wish to secure their desired MBBS seat in DMER Medical Colleges across Haryana. Keep reading for more information on NRI quota admission in Haryana medical colleges.
To secure admission for MBBS in Haryana, NRI candidates must go through the centralized counseling process conducted by the Department of Medical Education & Research (DMER) Haryana, which can be accessed through their website Website. The admission process is based on the marks obtained in the NEET exam. Only candidates who have qualified for the NEET exam and meet the eligibility criteria can register and fill out the application form for MBBS admission in Haryana. The counseling conducted by DMER Haryana consists of three rounds: Round 1 (online), Round 2 (physical counseling), and Mop-up Round (physical counseling). In the College Round, the fourth round, if there are x vacant seats, a list of 10x registered candidates will be sent to the college. These seats will be allocated strictly based on merit, following the order of the list.

The NRI definition followed in the state of Haryana aligns with the definition outlined in the Income Tax Act of 1961. According to this definition, a "Non-Resident Indian" refers to a person of Indian origin who does not hold the status of a "resident" as per the act. The act states that a person is considered a "resident in India" if they have resided there for a specified period. This period requires the person to stay in India for at least 182 days in a financial year or 365 days spread over four consecutive years, with at least 60 days in each of those years. Any Indian citizen who does not meet these criteria is classified as a non-resident of India.
A "Person of Indian Origin" (PIO) is an individual who is a citizen of any country other than Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Nepal, or Pakistan. Additionally, a person qualifies as a PIO if they or their parents or spouse were citizens of India as per the Constitution or if they held an Indian passport at any time.
The "Overseas Citizenship of India" (OCI) is a scheme established to provide a form of pseudo-citizenship since the Indian Constitution does not permit full dual citizenship. Under the OCI scheme, individuals who qualify as PIOs can obtain an OCI card, a long-term visa. However, this card comes with certain restrictions, such as limitations on voting rights and government job opportunities, and it serves as proof of OCI status for eligible individuals.
The DMER (Directorate of Medical Education and Research) in Haryana is responsible for conducting the Haryana NEET 2024 counseling process for all eligible candidates. Any updates regarding the Haryana NEET counseling, including important dates, will be posted on the official website dmer.haryana.gov.in. Interested candidates must register for the Haryana NEET counseling within the specified deadline. The Haryana MBBS merit list for 2024 will be published online and include the names of NEET 2024-qualified students eligible for the counseling process. The counseling process will consist of three rounds, including a mop-up round. Seat allotment in the Haryana MBBS counseling will be based on the choices made by the candidates, their NEET 2024 rank, seat availability, and reservation criteria.
DMER will oversee the Haryana NEET 2024 admissions for 85% of the state quota seats in government and government-aided colleges. However, counseling for the remaining 15% of All India Quota (AIQ) seats will be conducted by the DGHS (Directorate General of Health Services) on behalf of the MCC (Medical Counselling Committee).
Note: Candidates must report to the allotted institute within the specified period. If any seats remain vacant in private colleges under the state quota after the two online rounds of Haryana MBBS counseling 2024, those seats will be converted into management quota seats.
