    What is the definition of a non-resident Indian (NRI)?


    Wondering who is a NRI? Find suggestions from experts on this page.

    Generally it is understood that the Indians who reside in foreign countries are NRIs. What is the exact definition of a NRI? Also is there any NRI quota for admission in school, colleges and universities in India? Is the procedure of admission under NRI quota different ?
    Awaiting response.

    For all normal understanding, an NRI is an Indian citizen who has migrated to another country for purposes of employment etc and hose stay is for an indefinite period, but for more than six months . A person of Indian origin,(ancestry) who is a foreign citizen is also treated as NRI.

    However for different purposes there are precise definitions and explanations.( example, IT purpose and Foreign exchange purposes)
    At one place a resident is defined as one who stays in India for more than 182 days in a year.

    Admissions are followed as per the generally understood definition except when the country they stay comes under some special category or have some special arrangements for remittances. The brochures of the institutions may give details.

    Non-Resident Indian also known as NRI are the people who stay outside the India for more than 6 months. And the reason for this could be diplomatic, education and job. The person with such status has temporary stay option. And is yet to be considered as another countrys resident. NRI quota is meant for the students born from the parents who have achieved dual citizenship. And for them the management quota is assigned. So in case of such admissions, the management decides the fee structure. Such seats are often expensive and are reserved for the financial benefit to the institute.
