OBC Seats Still Lying Vacant At IITs

At IITs, a large numbers of seats are vacant this year after the first allotment of seats. This year, 1, 27,760 OBC candidates appeared for JEE but only 2,357 aspirants could qualify in the exam. The director of IIT Guwahati, Mr. Gautam Barua said, “Our SC seats have not been filled up this year in the first allotment because a lot of candidates did not qualify. We have nine vacancies in the SC quota now.” If vacant seats do not get filled after the allotment of seats then the vacant seats for SC/OBC quota will be transferred to the general category or taken up by the candidates from the last year’s preparatory course.
