    For a person with foreign passport and a valid OCI card I have heard can apply for NID as Overseas or Indian category. The fees for Overseas is about 4 times indian category. Is there any advantage in applying in foreign category due to the 15 reserved seats. Is the merit list/cut off marks same as General for Overseas.

    So the question is if there is no advantage why pay the higher fees. Wanted your help to decide on this.

    Also the admission process and merit list for overseas will come out in same time as May 31 right
