NTA Clarification About 15% All India Quota Seats in NEET2019-12-19
Having received queries from multiple applicants about filling up of choice under the “State of Eligibility (for 15% All India Quota)” column in the Application Form for National Eligibility cum Entrance Test NEET-UG-2020, NTA has clarified as below :
Candidates are eligible for this quota independent of their choice under State of Eligibility. Therefore, the candidates can fill in any State/UT (e.g. State/UT of their Class XII School, Home State/UT etc.) against this choice.
However, the candidates from erstwhile state of J & K (now known as UTs of J & K and Ladakh) are NOT ELIGIBLE for 15% all India quota seats as the erstwhile state of J & K had opted out of All India Scheme since its inception. If they claim eligibility, they must submit online Self- Declaration which will be generated and printed automatically along with confirmation page for record and to present the same during counselling/admission. The format/content of self-declaration is given in Appendix – III of the Information Bulletin of NEET-UG-2020.
The above is applicable to 15% All India Quota seats only. For State/UT quota and other seats falling under the ambit of States/UTs, the domicile will be governed by the respective State rules and will be required at the time of Counselling by the State/UT Authorities.
It is also reiterated that under various categories, State list Category Candidates who are not in Central List must choose General.
