Thousands of seats are going vacant, because of reservations. We are here to request the authority to transfer the reserve seats, if not filled up, must be transferred to the general category.

Jee Main is a very important exam for engineering aspirants where around 14 lakhs students appear for few thousands of seats. and the seats are vacant for years because of reservation criteria. let's come together and request the authority to think over this.

The Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs) practices affirmative action and offers reservation to backward sections of the society. SC/ST/OBC candidates mostly selected against general seats with high marks. However, a few backward class students still face casteism in India so all SC/ST/OBC candidates are offered relaxed admission norms for selection in IIT via reservations.

In all, there are 2,619 seats for OBC candidates and 1,454 and 733 seats for SC and ST students, respectively.
