Students of University of Mysore (UOM) have a reason to celebrate as the university has taken a decision to increase the number of seats in free category by 10 per cent. The UOM Syndicate has arrived at this decision keeping in mind the increasing urge among students to opt for higher courses. Now around 240 seats, in various departments, will be available for the students under 'A' scheme. This won't disturb the number of seats falling under payment category.
At present 2/3 of the seats in PG courses are given to students on merit basis, categorized as 'A' scheme. The remaining 1/3 seats are given to students who are ready to pay a higher amount as fee, fixed by the UOM and they are categorized as 'B' scheme students. B scheme students are also selected on merit basis. Sources told TOI that there was a discussion at a recent Syndicate meeting to cancel the B scheme and allot all seats to meritorious students at a subsidized rate.
The authorities claimed it would be tough for the UOM to mobilize resources if this two-tier system of admission is abolished. This decision has evoked a mixed response from teachers. A section of teachers feel that there was no need to increase the seats as the demand for PG courses is decreasing due to various reasons, including establishment of more universities and autonomy to colleges. Others feel that this will help students who cannot afford higher fees to continue their studies.
