Reservation of Seats

Reservation of Seats

In all programmes / courses offered by the University, 61% of the seats shall, be filled up on the basis odf open merit and 39% from amongst the Reserved Categories with the selection in the latter category being made on the basis of merit explained above.

However, in case of M.Sc. Biotechnology only two seats shall be offered to two candidates who top in the merit list of Reserved Categories; provided that only one candidate shall be taken from one category. The break-up of seats amongst the various categories and the issuing authorities of these certificates are detailed in the given table. Further, considering that the quota for admission under certain ‘reserved categories’ in respect of courses with a small intake capacity is not sufficient to add up to a whole number, the following mechanism has been devised to ensure maximum representation to each such category

  1.  In the first place the number of candidates to be selected for a particular category shall be determined by the integral part of the number of candidates allotted for that particular category.

  2.  The fractional parts attached to each category shall be clubbed together to take care of the remaining seats that shall remain available after taking into account the number of those admitted under (1) . Here again selection shall be made as per the relative merit position of candidates competing for admission against those categories with non – zero fractional representation subject to the following provisos :

  a)  Nonwithstanding the individual merit of the candidates at the most one Candidate shall be selected from each category in (2).

  b)  In the case of courses with the total number of applicants entitled for admission under Reserved categories, exceeding the total number of Reserved categories , allotment of seats shall be determined by (1) and (2), While making sure that prefence is given to those categories which are not Represented under (1).

It must be noted that the certificates required under a, b, c, d, e, f, and h must be in accordance with SRO 126 of 28th june, 1994 of the J&K Government and subsequent SRO’s issued by the Government .
