Universities to set aside 60% PG seats for own students

The state education department has decided to reserve 60 per cent of the post-graduate seats in the university for their own students who have graduated from there.

The state education department has decided to reserve 60 per cent of the post-graduate seats in the university for their own students who have graduated from there.

Education Minister Bratya Basu said the decision was taken after it was found that most of the graduate students could not get admissions in reputed universities. The committee,headed by Abhirup Sarkar,had earlier proposed it. The panel had slammed the current education system in the state saying it is heavily dependent on rote learning. “Students are forced to confine their energies in traditional examination-oriented system while their counterparts in other states are building racing cars,robots and solar-powered flying machines at undergraduate levels,” said a member.
