Kashmiri migrants will continue to get 5 per cent quota in admissions to undergraduate courses in Delhi University in the upcoming academic session with the varsity’s admission panel making it clear there are no changes for the category.

A top official of the 24-member committee, which is working on an admission policy for the ensuing session, on Tuesday said that no changes are likely in the reservation for Kashmiri Migrants.

The panel will submit its final recommendations to the Vice Chancellor who will then take a call on the admission policy which will be notified by end of this month.

“The Kashmiri migrants will continue to get upto 5 pc quota in admissions. However, these will be supernumerary seats and not affect the general and other category students,” RN Dubey, a committee member said.

“A concession of maximum 10 per cent in the last cut-off list for the general category candidates is also extended to the candidates for admissions to various courses (Reservation not applicable for courses requiring entrance test).

Candidates are required to fulfill the minimum eligible criteria prescribed by the university,” he added.

In a letter to the university, the HRD ministry had asked to ensure “concession for the wards of Kashmiri migrants for admission during academic session 2016-17”.

“The reservation to Kashmiri migrants has been part of DU’s admission policy for years. Candidates are required to submit the certificate of registration as a Kashmiri migrant, proof of property in Kashmir and proof of current residence in Delhi along with their applications, apart from other regular documents,” the official said.

Admission through this quota does not take place with the general admissions process, since this quota is ‘over and above’ other reserved categories of the university.
