i had bilateral profound hearing loss and got cochlear implant.am i eligible for neet under pwd..?...?. am i actually eligible for neet 2020?

Priyaanka Sarkar Student Expert 22nd Oct, 2019

Dear Banu, under Rights for persons with Disabilities under Benchmark disabilities, auditory disability should not exceed 40% to be eligible for PWD reservation in NEET. Now you haven't mentioned the disability percentage and so that it makes it difficult to guess. MCI has approximately 20  approved disability assessment centres which are listed in mcc.nic.in. You can get assessed at one of these centres. If the disability is more than 40% then you are not eligible for PWD reservation but will be considered for category reservation if applicable.
