Among few Universities JNU is the only University which is planning to increase the number of seats by 25% from the upcoming academic year.Other popular Universities in the country, however, such as the Delhi University, Banaras Hindu University and Tezpur University, have preferred a more faltered approach.

The decision by government to provide 10% quota for Economically weaker Section (EWS) has pinned down that Universities increase their seats by 25% so that the share of the seats for SC, ST, OBC or General categories is not affected.
