NLUO Reservation

The State Government of Odisha has urged NLU Odisha to reserve 25 per cent seats for the students of Odisha. The State wants some undergraduate seats to be reserved for Odisha students who have at least 60% marks in 12th.

The National Law University of Odisha (NLU Odisha) has been urged by Saswant Mishra, the Secretary of the Higher Education Department, to reserve 25 per cent of the total seats in the undergraduate courses for the students who belong to Odisha. Mishra has asked NLU Odisha to reserve these seats for the students of Odisha who have secured at least 60 per cent marks in their class 12th exams or its equivalent.

Saswat Mishra sent a letter to the Vice-Chancellor of the National Law University, Odisha in which he said that the State Government of Odisha has provided a sum of around Rs. 200 crores to NLU Odisha so that the infrastructure of the university can be developed.

NLU Odisha had also received one more letter from the Higher Education Department on 24th April 2018 on the same issue. When addressing the concern again this year, Mishra wrote in the letter that they have not received any reply from the university on that matter even after an entire year has elapsed. Apart from that, the students of Odisha are still not provided with reservation in undergraduate courses of the university as was asked a year back. Hence, Mishra requested NLU Odisha to address the matter.
