MSU to cut admission quota for Vadodara students?

Updated: May 14th, 2024

The recent decision of Vadodara’s Maharaja Sayajirao University (MSU) to reduce its quota for local students sparked controversy among Barodians.

In a recent meeting of the executive council, a proposal was presented to reduce the quota for local students from 70% to 50%.

Currently, in faculties such as Arts, Science, and Commerce, local students enjoy a 70% quota in admission. 

After the introduction of the recent Gujarat Public Universities Act, of 2023 (also known as the Common Universities Act), the executive council replaced the traditional syndicate system of the university. 

It would be easy for the executive council to approve the decision without making any arbitrary suggestions.

Despite the outcry of locals and students, the admission quota for local students at MSU is bound to be cut, suggested the reports.
