Dear sir/Madam


I want to know the procedure for admission into BE courses in engineering colleges, in India.


My son is presently in  12th class with the CBSE board.


But he is presently studying in a Gulf country's Indian school outside India.


That means he is now NRI.He studied from class 5th to class 12th outside India . 


I want to know if he can take admission into BE courses in engineering colleges, in India if he gets a qualified score in JEEentrance.


If he qualifies in JEE  entrance and wants to join into BE courses in engineering colleges, in INDIA. the fee structure will be the same as normal Indian students or he has to pay fees like an NRI student?


Is it Mandatory to join as an NRI student because he studied abroad or he can also join like all other Indian students if he qualifies in  JEE and he can pay normal fees like an Indian student?

Also i want to is he eligible to write another entrance exam like BITSAT, SRMEE, VITEE etc and if he qualifies he can pay normal fees like an Indian students or he has to pay NRI fees.



I shall be happy if you will clarify this by sending an email as quick as possible.


Thanking you
