Domicile Rule: *This will come under admission only*

As per the admission policy of the university, NLIU provides reservation for the students having the residentship of Madhya Pradesh. The process for attaining a Domicile Certificate is that the Tehsildar, Additional Tehsildar or Naib Tehsildar of the concerned area are authorised to issue the certificate for domicile. A passport size photograph of the applicant is generally affixed and attested on the certificate. The wife and minor children of the certificate holder are naturally treated as residents of Madhya Pradesh. They do not need any separate domicile certificate. In the domicile certificate, details of wife and minor children are recorded and the competent officer certifies them as domicile of Madhya Pradesh.

A domicile certificate issued on the name of the head of the family is always applicable for the whole family. When the minor children become adults, a copy of the domicile certificate is sufficient proof for the competent authority to issue domicile certificate in the name of the adult. It may be mentioned here that the domicile certificate issued is not treated as a proof for verifying caste of an individual.
