NIT Eluru to get 480 Engineering Seats for 2015-16

The National Institute of Technology (NIT) to be established at Eluru (West Godavari district) is likely to get 480 seats in Engineering courses. Out of these, 240 seats will be allocated for the local state, Andhra Pradesh student and remaining 240 seats will be filled on all India basis through JEE main ranks.

The United Andhra Pradesh has NIT at Warangal. Andhra Pradesh lost the seats in this NIT after the bifurcation and 50 percent local seats will be filled with students from Telangana state only under Home State quota.

The AP Government has written to Union HRD Ministry for quota in NIT Warangala seats as the new NIT at Eluru will have only 90 or 120 seats and this will be a big loss for the AP students. HRD Ministry has proposed to increase the number of seats in NIT Eluru instead of allocating share in NIT Warangal seats, as this will lead the legal controversy with Telangana.

The Union Government has also made it clear that the common admission process mentioned in AP Reorganisation Act 2014 is not applicable to NITs and 50 percent seats will go to the students of the concerned state.
