Quota: IIM Calcutta decides to increase seats
Director of IIMC Shekhar Chaudhury told PTI that the institute had taken the decision to increase the number of seats although it did not receive any order from the HRD ministry to that effect.
From the coming session starting end of June, the total number of seats for full time postgraduate programmes had been increased from 265 to 335, he said.
This has been published in all major newspapers. Most of them have glossed over the fact that ONLY 70 seats have been added, this is not enough to accomodate a 27% new quota. According to our estimates IIM calcutta should increase seats for full-time undergraduate programmes from 265 to 431 (an increase of 166)
