While some students blame the high cut-offs under EWS category as the reason for not filling up of seats, there are many teachers who feel that cut-offs cut-offs shouldn’t be blamed for the vacant seats under EWS category as colleges having a lower cutoff still haven’t been able to attract a lot of admissions.
