90% reservation under Domicile Policy proposed by Jadavpur University Faculty Council
The Jadavpur University's Faculty Council of Engineering and Technology (FET) has recommended reservation of 90 percent of general seats in undergraduate courses under the domicile quota, an official said on Thursday i.e. March 7, 2019.
"The FET has recommended the implementation of domicile policy. Now, the decision will be forwarded to the Executive Council (EC)," said Chiranjib Bhattacharya, Dean of the engineering faculty.
Mr. Bhattacharya explained that the EC, the university's highest decision-making body, would give the final approval.
This is a major shift in policy, the proposal will be again sent to West Bengal's higher education council and only after that it will be implemented and it is a long drawn process.
Varsity's in favor of the proposal
As many as 13 out of the varsity's 16 engineering and technology departments were in favor of the introduction of the proposal.
