This may be the case for the year 2019 as well as the criteria clearly states that the candidate must be an Indian citizen even if his/her parents have been residing in Karnataka state.

      Looking at your case where you fulfill the eligibility criteria of studying for at least 7 years in the state itself, you are eligible to apply for KCET 2019. However, we suggest you contact the KEA regarding the same on Phone : 080 – 23460460 or email at [email protected]

    • You are not eligible to take the KCET 2019 as the criteria states that the candidate should have studied for at least 7 academic years in the state of Karnataka.
