IIT model eyed by Centre to fill vacant quota seats

Views: 163

The government wants all Central universities to implement a course long run by the Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs) to fill the vacant quota seats for other backward classes (OBCs). The ministry of human resource development, which oversees education, is considering a proposal to introduce preparatory courses at the Central universities to enrol quota students who fail to secure admission. The year-long feeder course would coach them for admission to the varsities.
