      What will happen to thousands of NRI student aspirants? Most do not have the Aadhar card, and there is no provision to apply for one . Why should these innocent children be marginalized. Pport/Resident Visa is a higher form of identification and must be considered - specifically for NRI Students.

        COMMENTSlt;br/gt;Lakhs of students sit for IITJEE every year but only a few make it through. Statistically speaking out of those many students around 5,000 manage to get into high ranked IITs. When the compeion is cut-throat one needs and has to have judicious planning and smart strategies to achieve that profile which they have set out for. IITJEE toppers not only work hard but they do so with a lot of focus and thinking.lt;br/gt;Learn from the Toppers at
