Jaipur: There is good news for students seeking admission in Malaviya National Institute of Technology (MNIT). For the new academic session 2019-20, an increase of 25% in seats has been announced. The total number of seats for BTech first year will increase to 888 from 710 with this increase. This will enable more number of bright students to apply and get admission in this premier engineering institute of Rajasthan.
An increase of 10% in seat matrix has been announced in the Economically Weaker Section (EWS) category so that the girl students applying for the reserved seats don’t get affected. The Rajasthan government had introduced this reservation last year to boost the ratio of the girl students in the MNIT.
Seventeen percent of the seats will be reserved for the girl students this academic session. This percentage was 14% last year.
“The increase in seats will benefit a lot of student looking to get admission in MNIT. The total increase in 25% which means that nearly 180 more students will be enrolled compared to the last academic year. We believe that studious and serious students will now get a better shot at admission,” said a senior MNIT officer.
The admission process will begin in June.
