For 10% increase in seats for EWS quota, following are the guidelines to facilitate its implementation:

  • The MCI would increase the seats for implementing 10% EWS quota.
  • This increase in seats would not entail any corresponding increase in infrastructure or faculty right now. Periodical assessment would be done at stage of 1st Renewal, 4th renewal and recognition stage. The periodical assessments at 1st & 4th renewal would be advisory in nature till the stage of recognition inspection.
  • In order to implement the 10% EWS reservation quota, the increase in seats has to be effectively 25% of the current intake to ensure that the existing number of general and other quota seats are not affected. Thus a college with current intake of 100 seats would need to add 25% additional seats i.e.
  • The calculation of seat increase has to be made taking into consideration the total intake of students at the “State” level considering all the seats / institution where the Government reservation policy is applicable and is being implemented.
  • The overall increase is to be calculated on basis of 2019-20 approved / permitted seats and will can be implemented over a two year period i.e. 2019-20 & 2020-21.
  • In the first phase the increase will be applicable only in colleges with approved / permitted intake of 200 or less.
  • The increase in seats matrix would be as below:
Intake 25% increase The applicable MSR at the stage of recognition
50 62 50
100 125 150
150 187 200
200 250 250
  • The Consent for increase in seats applicable will be received from the State Governments to the MCI latest by 11.06.2019, so that the MCC can be informed by 15.06.2019 for inclusion of the increased seats for counseling during the current admission year 2019-20.
  • The format for providing the said information is provided in Annexure-I. The State has to first calculate the additional seats that are required for implementing the 10% EWS quota and then using the format and matrix provided in Annexure-I, ascertain the colleges where the increased seats are required and indicate the same while submitting the request to the MCI. The MO will not grant more seats than the amount calculated for implementing 10% EWs quota, even if, the State has more capacity for intake.
  • The State Govt, who have already submitted the proposal for increase in seats may resubmit the same, in case they so desire, taking the above scheme for increase in seats as per the proposal.
