NUJS 30% domicile quota to land in 2020

NUJS Kolkata’s West Bengal domicile quote of 30%, which had been delayed from implementation this year, would take effect from the 2020 academic year, vice chancellor (VC) Prof Nirmal Kanti Chakrabarti told the Telegraph.

The Common Law Admission Test (CLAT) committee has apparently been told about the move, Chakrabarti said.

The quota bill was first tabled in the WB assembly in 2018, and passed without much discussion in June 2019.

While the quota was to kick in for the 2019-20 academic year, it had not been possible to implement at such short notice within the parameters of the CLAT.

Existing students at alumni will probably not be happy at what could be perceived as a dilution of quality standards at NUJS.

The state government, on the other hand, will no doubt be delighted.

We have reached out to Chakrabarti for comment; he had been appointed at NUJS in late June from KIIT Bhubaneswar, after a power vacuum for nearly a year at the Kolkata NLU.
