In a major relief to Non-Resident Indians (NRIs) in the Gulf, the Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) has slashed the fee for their children seeking admissions to NITs (National Institutes of Technology) under the Direct Admission of Students Abroad (DASA) from this academic year.
 
The fee for Children of Indian Workers in the Gulf (CIWG) has been reduced to Rs 1.25 lakh a year. Previously the annual tuition fee was $8,000 a year (Rs 5,14,600), besides a non-refundable registration fee of $300 (Rs. 19,300).
 
The Centre has created a quota of 5% each supernumerary seats for CIWG, NRIs in other countries and People of Indian Origin and international students in 47 premier institutes.
 
NRIs had petitioned the Ministry pointing out that the order on hiking DASA fee from $700 to $4,000 per semester early this year was too late for many of them to register for other entrance examinations and also created financial problems for them.
 
The admissions to various UG and PG programmes of premier institutes of India under the DASA scheme will be coordinated by Visvesvaraya National Institute of Technology, Nagpur, for 2017-18. The first round of seat allotment will be done on June 24. The details on the refund mechanism will be communicated on the DASA website.
