Kashmiri migrants


Delhi University is going to continue with 5% course-wise reservation of the seats in all colleges for wards of Kashmiri migrants. Kashmiri students from outside Delhi and Jammu will also be eligible to apply under the quota.

The 5% quota for children of Kashmiri migrants is supernumerary, implying that this percentage of seats will be over and above the existing seat matrix.

The University has released certain guidelines for students applying under this category:

  1. Wards of Kashmiri migrants who wish to be considered for admission under this category must register online, as per the schedule released by the university.
  2. Candidates must upload a certificate of registration as Kashmiri migrant issued by the Divisional Commissioner/ Relief Commissioner, along with proof of property in Kashmir, and proof of current residence along with their applications, apart from the other regular documents.
  3. A maximum concession of 10% in the last cut-off mark fixed for the General Category will be extended to wards of Kashmiri migrants. This reservation is not applicable for courses requiring an entrance test.
  4. Admission of wards of Kashmiri migrants will be based on cut-offs announced by the colleges.

Kashmiri migrants will continue to get 5 per cent quota in admissions to undergraduate courses, according to the admission panel of Delhi University. A top official of the committee, responsible for admissions of the upcoming session, informed that the panel has recommended no change in their reservation process. Recently, the Human Resource Department Ministry had questioned the aforesaid concession in its letter to the university.

The official further informed that the applicants for this quota will be required to submit the certificate of registration as a Kashmiri migrant, proof of property in Kashmir and proof of current residence in Delhi along with their applications, along with other required documents for the procedure. This quota is considered to be ‘over and above’ other reserved categories and will not affect the general admission process.

Final recommendations of the admission panel will be submitted to the Vice Chancellor and the final admission policy will be declared by the end of this month.
