Students protest against seat reduction in M.Phil/PhD announced by JNU

Jawaharlal National University (JNU) reduced the seats available under M.Phil and PhD courses for the upcoming academic session. Students have protested the decision made by officials of JNU to reduce the intake for mentioned programmes.

As announced by the university’s evaluation branch, 232 seats are reduced for School of Social Sciences (SSS), 141 seats are reduced for School of International Studies (SIS) and 73 seats are reduced for School of Language, Literature and Culture Studies. At present the strength of SSS is 330 students, SIS is 222 and School of Language, Literature and Culture Studies is 237.

Centre for African Studies, Centre for East African Studies, Centre for Indo-Pacific Studies, Centre for the Study of Discrimination and Exclusion, and Centre for Media Studies will not have any admission this year for the above mentioned two programmes.

JNU departments which have reduced the seats:

Pratim Ghoshal, who is a JNU student and member of Democratic Students Forum (DSF) said that University has released the number of intake for the upcoming admissions, which violated the intake approved by Academic Council as well as court orders.
