Super Numery Quata – SNQ. This type of reservation was released last year for candidates who’s parents have income less than 2 lakhs per year. The fee structure is different and quite cheap. The big deal with it is that even those who do not have reservation in any other category can apply for this. For instance even a Brahmin candidate can apply for reservation in a SNQ quata.
The reservation system has really spoilt the education system in Karnataka. candidates who have done extremely well in their studies are not being able to get the college that they deserve and at the same time there are many candidates who are having a very good economical back ground and still cheat and get through the tasildar’s office with a caste certificate in their hand. The SNQ quata on the other hand makes treats castes as equal and gives reservation only for the people who are having financial problem. The Indian Government must soon abolish this caste reservation system and focus on seat reservation systems based on their families income and not on their caste.
Here is the KEA has to say about Super Numerary Quata.
1.What is Super Numerary Quota (SNQ)?
The AICTE has introduced a Supernumerary Quota in all Engineering Colleges for the
year 2012-13. 5% of the seats in each college and in each course will be reserved as
Supernumerary Quota. This quota is over and above the seat matrix issued by the
Government. For Example, if there are 120 seats in Computer Science in a particular
college, the Supernumerary quota for Computer Science in that particular college will be
6 seats. Therefore the total intake in that college for computer science will be 126. All
candidates whose parental income is less than Rs.4.50 Lakhs per annum will be eligible
for allotment of Supernumerary Quota. Such a candidate has to get the income
certificate issued by the Tahsildar for consideration for allotment under this quota. This
quota of seats is open to all students irrespective of caste, category- the only criterion
being the Income Certificate issued by the Tahsildar.
If a candidate gets a Super Numerary Quota (SNQ) seat, then the tuition fee prescribed
by the Government in that particular college will be waived off. The candidate has to pay
the other fees only. This Supernumerary quota is not available for Architecture Course.
All candidates including General Merit are eligible for allotment of seats under
Supernumerary quota if their parental annual income is less than Rs.4.50 Lakhs.
2.How do I become eligible to give an option under Supernumerary Quota?
If the parental annual income is less than Rs.4.50 Lakhs per annum, then such candidate
has to produce the Income Certificate issued by the jurisdictional Tahasildar which should
be submitted at the time of verification of documents in order to become eligible for
allotment of Supernumerary Quota seats. These seats will be allotted in the order of
merit and options entered by the candidate.
3.Can I give option for both regular and Supernumerary Quota Seats?
There is no need to give separate options for Supernumerary quota seats. While allotting
the seats the software will consider Supernumerary quota seats first for allotment if seats
are available and if the candidate is eligible for it.
4.How is Supernumerary Quota seat allotted?
Seats up to maximum of 5% of sanctioned intake per course in each college approved by
AICTE will be offered as Supernumerary seats. The software is designed in such a
manner that while considering the options entered by the candidate for allotment, the
priority in engineering options will be considered first against the Supernumerary Quota
seats if seats are available in the order of merit as per candidate’s eligibility
