INDIAN MARITIME UNIVERSITY
(A CENTRAL UNIVERSITY, GOVERNMENT OF INDIA)
Sub: Reservation of 10 Seats for students of Jammu & Kashmir
The Executive Committee of the Indian Maritime University, at its 30th meeting held on 25th February 2015, noted that starting an IMU Campus in Andaman & Nicobar Islands, Lakshadweep and Minicoy Islands or the eight North Eastern States [Assam, Meghalaya, Arunachal Pradesh, Mizoram, Nagaland, Manipur, Tripura and Sikkim] may not be a feasible proposition, and the only way by which opportunities for maritime education and employment can be assured to the students of these regions is by reserving a certain number of seats in UG courses in IMU Campuses.
The Executive Council therefore resolved that candidates native to Andaman & Nicobar Islands, Lakshadweep & Minicoy Islands, the eight North Eastern States and Jammu and Kashmir or those domiciled in these regions for at least 5 years shall be eligible for the reservation provided the candidates have cleared IMU’s Common Entrance Test (CET).
The Executive Council further resolved that the maximum number of seats reserved in a given academic year for all UG Programmes put together in all IMU Campuses put together shall be as follows:
1. Andaman and Nicobar Islands 20 seats
2. Lakshadweep and Minicoy Islands 10seats
3. Eight North Eastern States (Including Sikkim) 40 seats
4. Jammu & Kashmir 10seats
The reserved seats will be allotted to the eligible candidates based on their CET rank and their preference(s) for UG course(s)/IMU Campuses. If the reserved seats are not filled up in a given academic year, they shall not be carried over to next academic year and the unfilled seats shall be filled up from the General list of candidates.
The advertisement for IMU’s CET 2015 was issued on 22nd February 2015 and the last date for applying for CET 2015 is 22nd April 2015.
