Admissions to integrated B. Tech course of Andhra Pradesh IIITs or Rajiv Gandhi University of Knowledge Technologies will be held on July 26 and 27. Releasing the list of qualified students, minister for higher education Damodar Raja Narasimha said that a total of 1,800 crores have been allocated as funds for revamping infrastructure in the three campuses of the university located in Basar, Nuzivid and RK Valley. A total of 2,807 seats out of 3,000 seats will be filled by students from rural areas while 193 sets will be filled by physically-challenged students.
The admissions to the institute will be done as per the amendment to the presidential orders issued in June 2012, i.e., the merit list prepared by assigning 0.4% marks to the Grade Point Average obtained by students from rural areas. The university had put their admissions on hold this year as the SSC board introduced grading process for the first time. The extra score of 0.4% which was added to students from rural backgrounds, called additional deprivation score, is meant to level out the socio-economic backwardness. As per the region-wise reservation policies, a total of 1002 seats will be set aside for students from Andhra University area, 859 seats for students from Osmania University area and 525 for students from SV university area. Among all the students who made it to the merit list 50.30% were girls and the rest being boys. Going by the motto of the university 88% of the seats are reserved for people from rural background while only 12% seats are for open merit. Faculty recruitment to the campuses will be made in a phased manner, officials said.
