There is a good news for the oppressed Hindu migrants from Pakistan and Bangladesh from the Ministry of External Affairs; these migrants need not appear for any entrance exams like NEET or common entrance tests to pursue Medical, Dental and Engineering courses. The Ministry of External Affairs runs a self-financing scheme through which the foreign nationals from developing countries can get admissions in MBBS, BDS, BE, Bachelor of Pharmacy (B.Pharm) and diplomas in the same streams across India.
The ministry has decided to extend the above mentioned scheme to the oppressed religious minorities who have migrated from Bangladesh and Pakistan and have started a new life in India. They can study MBBS, BDS and BE courses from this year.
What will be the selection procedure for these courses
