J-K Reserves 4% seats | Engineering, Medical Colleges in Ladakh
Ladakh Students 4% seats Reservation: This decision about J-K Reserves 4% seats of Engineering, Medical Colleges in Ladakh was taken by Chief Secretary B V R Subrahmanyam. The Jammu and Kashmir administration announced that reservation of 4% seats in engineering and medical colleges for students from the Ladakh Union Territory.
The decision was taken in a meeting by Chief Secretary B V R Subrahmanyam with regard to reservations of seats for students from the Union Territory of Ladakh in professional institutions, for 2020-21 batch.
He said that reservation in colleges according to Jammu and Kashmir Reservation Act and Rules which have been amended after the reorganization of Jammu and Kashmir. The Act and Rules do not apply in Ladakh. It is a great rule indeed because we know that there are fewer opportunities for the residents of Ladakh. So, it is kind of important to reserve seats for students. According to the constitution of India, everybody has the right to study. So this is a great initiative by the Indian Government.
Keeping in view the non-availability of colleges in Ladakh, the Advisory Committee constituted by the Government of India, a decision was taken earlier to reserve 4% seats in both engineering and medical colleges of Jammu and Kashmir for students from Ladakh.
Accordingly, 24 seats from engineering colleges and 35 seats from medical colleges will be deducted from the total number of available seats. The reservation for the residents of Jammu and Kashmir will be calculated on remaining seats as per the provisions of the JK Reservation Act and Rules.
Subrahmanyam also asked the General Administration Department of Jammu and Kashmir to inform the Ladakh Administration.
Regarding the seats reserved for Ladakh students, the chief secretary directed the Jammu and Kashmir Board of Professional Entrance Examinations (BOPEE) to take up the matter with Ladakh Administration in terms of admission policy and reservation policy to be adopted for selecting their candidates.
