RESERVATION POLICY OF B-SCHOOLS
B-Schools in India have certain selective policies at a broad level for candidates hailing from the reserved categories so as to select them for the seats reserved for them on specific grounds. Usually, the candidates are elected based on their performances in entrance exams (if given), overall academics and interviews.
The reservation policies followed by the B-schools can be classified into the following disciplines:
National level Gov. B-schools (Ex. IIMs, IITs, NITIE, FMS, TISS, IIFT, IIFM)
Nationally acclaimed and resourced Business Schools reserve the seats according to the rules generated by the government and functions accordingly. Seat registration pattern is provided below:
- Other Backward Classes – Non-creamy (OBC-NC): 27%
- Scheduled classes (SC): 15%
- Scheduled Tribe (ST): 7.5%
- Differently Abled (DA): 3%
State level B-schools [admissions are accomplished by Univ. or DTE authorities, Ex. HCU, BHU-FMS, All MH Colleges (MMS program)]
Some state level B-Schools offer selective regional and domicile reservation facilities by freezing a limited percentage of seats for those candidates hailing from the favorable domiciles and regions. The reservation varies from state to state. In Andhra Pradesh, many Business Schools have reserved a total of 100% seating for residents who are local of AP itself. It must be kept in mind that there could be facilities for provincial reservation under the home state reserved seats, which will be processed on the universities and state government’s terms and norms.
Minority institutions (Ex. LIBA (Catholic Christians), Rizvi(Muslims)
On a contrary note, Minority Institutions are situated by those small communities that offer large leverage to the students belonging to that particular society or minority. Some of these institutions offer 50% reservation to applicants addressing from the minority community. Like, LIBA believes to be reserving 50% seats for Christian applicants or Rizvi Mumbai reserving 50% seats to the applicants from their own Muslim community.
Some selective privately held B-schools affiliated to Symbiosis International University or any other reputed organizations offer seat reservation facilities to SC, ST, DA and Kashmiri migrants.
