  • After all the seats are filled during the mop-up round, unfilled NRI, the Muslim minority, and Jain minority seats will be converted to Indian National seats before reverting to the deemed universities. Earlier, these seats were reverted to a stray vacancy for round two.
  • The reservation policy of AIQ for central institutes and state-contributed seats will include SC 15%, ST 7.5%, OBC (Non-Creamy Layer) as per the Central OBC list, 27%, EWS: 10%, and PWD-horizontal reservation as per NMC norms of 5%. Earlier, the OBC and EWS reservation schemes were only for central institute seats.
