Andhra Pradesh students may loss if a National Institute of Technology is set up in AP it’s beneficial to Telangana people. This curios reversal only because of the home state quota that all NITs have. The Central Seat Allocation Board (CSAB), which conducts JEE Main counselling, has said that students from both states will get seats in NIT Warangal under the 50 per cent home quota until the NIT in AP starts functioning.
There are 740 seats across all branches in NIT Warangal from that 340 belongs to both AP and TS. But after splitting the state 340 seats belongs to TS students. “We have not received any communication from the CSAB about alterations in the home quota. Unless they write to us, the existing arrangement will continue,” said Prof. D.V.L.N. Somaya-julu, dean of academics, NIT Warangal.
When asked, Prof. U.S. Triar NIT Patna, said, “As a policy, the existing quota in NIT Warangal will continue for both states and students from both states can get seats under the home quota.” He added “As and when there is a new NIT set up in AP, each state will get home quota in its own NIT”.
But it is worse that as it is anew NIT only 100 seats allot to them. That means only 50seats among 340 in NIT Warangal. However, still we should wait whether AP will be able to commence the session in the upcoming academic year.
