In a row with changing education system, University Grants Commission (UGC) made an important decision for the students of Jammu and Kashmir. Now, with the new recommendations of UGC, all the central universities will have to reserve two supernumerary seats in their affiliated colleges. The decision has been approved by the Ministry of HRD.
The UGC has issued a letter regarding the creation of two supernumerary seats. In the letter, all the information has been forwarded. “The Ministry of Human Resource and Development had decided that two Supernumerary Quota will be made available to the students of Jammu and Kashmir who seek admission through centralized counselling in universities/colleges approved under section 2(1) and 12 B of the UGC Act or recognized by AICTE and have at least one NBA approved course,” the letter by UGC secretary Jaspal S Sandhu said.
Also, the letter added, “I would feel highly obliged, if you kindly ensure that the two supernumerary in your esteemed university and colleges affiliated under your esteemed university are created for the students of Jammu and Kashmir.”
The move by the HRD Ministry will definitely felicitate the students of Jammu and Kashmir. The students of Jammu and Kashmir need to get this leverage as efficiently as possible. As some parts of Jammu and Kashmir are not well connected to the rest of India, this move would motive the students of Jammu and Kashmir to get a better education in the renowned universities of India.
