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.
MHRD has asked the Universities to submit a plan in order to ensure that the seats can be increased by 25% in the coming 2 years.The JNU¬†administration has agreed to increase seats by 25% in the academic year 2019-20 itself. According to a proposal, the university aims to increase its intake capacity by 1,450, from 5,803 students in 2018-19 to 7,253 in the next session.
Among the Central Universities, Jamia Millia Islamia and Aligarh Muslim University (AMU) will not be implementing the EWS quota.
