HYDERABAD: The CBSE has issued a clarification regarding eligibility of students applying for Neet-UG 2017 who are not domiciles but are staying in TS, AP and Jammu and Kashmir.
The CBSE said the clarification was released after it received requests from students who had erroneously filled the ‘self-declaration form’.
Confusion arose regarding students who are not residents of the three states — TS, AP and J&K — but were residing there due to the jobs of their parents.
For these students, the CBSE had provided a self declaration form.
Students who are not born domiciles of the state but still living there can fill the form offering the clarification to CBSE.
These students, would then be considered to the 15 per cent all-India quota.
In effect, students who fill the self declaration form would not be eligible to participate in the state counselling in TS, AP and J&K.
The official notification issued by the CBSE on February 1 stated that students of TS, AP and J&K were not eligible for the 15 per cent all-India quota....
