New Delhi, July 09, 2018: The Haryana government has decided to reserve 15 per cent seats in the BE/BTech courses in government and private technical institutes for students who are not from the state, an official spokesperson said today. The remaining 85 per cent seats will be reserved for the state quota. A spokesperson of the Technical Education Department said that after the second online centralised counselling, all the vacant seats under the rest of the state quota would be opened to all general candidates in subsequent counselling at the institution level according to reports published in financialexpress.com
The policy of 15 per cent of quota in the sanctioned intake would improve not only the accreditation status for the National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC), but also improve the National Institutional Ranking Framework (NIRF) ranking of the institutes, he said.
