IIM (Indian Institute of Management) Nagpur has imposed 10% extra reservation in its campus for non-creamy layer of general category students. The directions have been initiated after the government asked all the Indian institutes to impose extra 10% reservations for the backward classes in general category apart from the seats already reserved for SC/ST and other categories.

Though initially the institute has increased its scale to only 10 seats from existing 120 seats to see the impact of quota. However, it will only admit 4 students from the additional 10 seats.

“We began implementing the scheme by increasing our intake to only 130 seats for the year 2019-20 on account of infrastructure constraints. However, we will implement the full 10% quota by following year, 2020-21 in accordance with the government guidelines,” said IIM-N Director, Prof. L.S Muthy.

The candidates, who are eligible to facilitate the extra 10% reservation are

  1. Who are not covered under SC/ST/OBC or any other category.
  2. Whose family has a gross annual income below Rs 8 lakh.
  3. The student’s family if own following assets will be excluded from the reservation category, irrespective of the required income amount:
  • 5 acres of agricultural land and above.
  • Residential flat of 1000 sq ft. and above
  • Residential plot of 100 square yards and above on notified municipalities
  • Residential plot of 200 sq. yards and above in areas other than the notified municipalities.

10% Quota Bill

The bill was introduced by Ministry of Social Justice and Empowerment and was taken into account by MHRD on January 9th 2019. The bill complies 10% reservation to the Economically Weaker Sections (EWSs) among the general category in government jobs and education.

The bill has been issued to be implemented in Central Educational Institutions, which is to be funded by govt. Some of the institutions including 8 institutions of excellence, research institutions, institutions of national and strategic importance are exempted from the bill.
