Indian students living in the UAE and foreign nationals can now
apply for 15 per cent of total seats at premier educational
institutes in India.
The Indian Ministry of Education has notified that undergraduate
admissions under Direct Admission of Students Abroad (DASA) Scheme
for year 2022-23 will be made on the basis of the ranks obtained by
students in the Joint Entrance Examination-Main (JEE - Main)
conducted by National Testing Agency (NTA).
Nearly 15 per cent of total seats at National Institute of
Technology (NITs), International Institute of Information
Technology (IIITs), and centrally funded technical institutions,
except Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs) have been reserved
for this category of students.
The scheme is available in different disciplines
proportionately. At present, approximately 3,900 undergraduate and
1,300 postgraduate seats are offered under the scheme.

including India, wards of persons of Indian origin (PIOs), overseas
citizen of India (OCI) and non-resident Indians (NRIs), to pursue
technical education in India in NITs and other centrally funded
technical institutions, excluding IITs.
“Boon for Indian students and foreign nationals. Apply now,” the
Indian Embassy in Abu Dhabi said.
