Is A 40% visual disable student is eligible for Pwd reservation in Neet or get a Mbbs set.
Sorry but a 40% Visual disable candidate won't be able to get PwD Reservation because being 40% visual disable does not put you in blind or visual impairment category. And also 40% visual disability can be corrected with the assistance of eyeglasses so it's out of the option.
All The Best.
