Can I apply for non-NRI quota even though I completed my 12th outside India?
If you have studied only your class 9 to 12 in foreign countries, then you come under non NRI category and can't be admitted as a normal student.
If it was only 11 and 12 also fine.
But if you have studied right from your primary then you are nri category.
So check for the above condition.
