My parents are from Kerala working in UP. I am born and brought up in UP, studied xth and xiith in UP and have birth certificate from UP. is a domicile certificate needed to apply neet 85% quota in UP?

Naveen Meena Student Expert 18th Nov, 2019

Dear aspirant, you don't need any domicile certificate for applying to 85% STATE QUOTA. As per the rules any student who has completed 10th and 12th from UP will not be required to provide domicile certificate during counselling.

Your 10th and 12th marksheet are proof that you are permanent resident of this state so there's no need to provide domicile certificate.

All the best

Hope this helps
