The registration fee for Overseas Citizen of India/ Person of Indian Origin (OCI/PIO) students who are appearing for the Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) Advanced has been revised. According to the new guidelines, the fee for OCI/PIO category students is at par with the amount for Indian nationals. The decision was taken in light of the Anushka Rengunthwar & Ors. Vs Union of India & Ors judgement, which prompted an emergency meeting of the exam’s Joint Admission Board earlier this month. A statement in this regard was also issued by the board. This year’s JEE Advanced exam will be conducted by the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Guwahati.
OCI/PIO category candidates will be able to appear for the JEE Advanced 2023 without taking part in the JEE Main 2023, a measure that has been announced for this year only. One point aspirants should keep in mind is that the eligibility criteria will be the same as was announced previously.

This measure shall be applicable only for the year 2023. The fees payable by the OCI/PIO candidates have been revised and are at par with the fees payable by Indian nationals”, a press release by the Organising Chairperson of the JEE-Advanced 2023 read.
