Team Allen with the Speaker

NEET-UG for the first time in Dubai and Kuwait

DUBAI, August 2, 2021

The Indian Ministry of Education has announced new centres for the Gulf region in Dubai and Kuwait to conduct the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET-UG) smoothly. 
This massive step came as a huge relief for NRI (Non- Resident Indian) parents and students. With the efforts of Allen Career Institute Overseas and the support of Lok Sabha Speaker, Om Birla along with various other stakeholders, NEET exam will be conducted in Kuwait and Dubai from this year.
Keshav Maheshwari, Managing Director, Allen Overseas, said that many Indian families reside in Gulf countries, and thousands of students apply for Indian Medical Entrance Examination. A special quota is also allotted to these students. 
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic worldwide and the non-availability of examination centres of NEET-UG examinations, many students also requested Allen to find a solution in this regard. Listening to their request, Team Allen wrote a letter to the Union Education Minister and requested Birla to look into this matter of setting up NEET-UG Exam centres in the Gulf region.
As a result of the cumulative efforts of all stakeholders including parents' community and Indian embassies in the Gulf, NTA announced new centres for the Gulf region to smoothly conduct NEET-UG. After this announcement, Team Allen visited Birla at his office and thanked him for acknowledging the NRI students' and parents' needs and positively intervening into the same.
Students from UAE, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Qatar, Oman, and Bahrain will also get an opportunity to take the exam while living in the Gulf countries.-- TradeArabia News Service
