Refugees from Pakistan and Bangladesh can no longer secure admission to medical courses in India. The exemption policy granted to those religious minorities, especially Hindu, prosecuted in Pakistan and Bangladesh for medical admission based upon their marks secured in class 12 has been scrapped.
Earlier in 2016, the NDA government allows them to pursue medical courses on self-financing basis if the students scored a minimum of 60 per cent in science and 50 per cent in English without going through any entrance examination.

The sudden changes of course comes following the supreme court direction to make NEET mandatory for all medical admission in the country.
Foreign nationals including migrants from Pakistan and Bangladesh who were prosecuted for being Hindu will also comply by the rule, according to the notification released by the external affairs ministry.
“The CBSE has issued a notification that from academic year 2017-18 onwards, admissions in all medical/dental colleges in India will be based on the NEET, including for foreign nationals,” sources said adding, “This will include religious minority migrants from Pakistan and Bangladesh based in India who can apply for MEA’s self-financing scheme for MBBS/MD courses for foreigners from developing countries since last year,” as reported by Hindustan Times.
Before the policy was scrapped, there were around 26 colleges where the MEA facilitates the admission base on mark secured in class 12 and on self-financing basis. Among them were AIIMS and Safdarjung Hospital.
