    which are popular and a sort of platform providing reputation and secure future , which every one looks for as early as possible.

  3. Sir,my d.o.b is 23-sep-1992 ,can i eligible for jee mains 2017 ,pls reply by my email id which is given below

    • For General Category, Cut off for DOB is – 1st October, 1992
      For Reserved Category. Another 5 yrs relaxation is applicable

      As I am not aware of your category, I cannot tell whether you still have a chance or not. Decide for yourself.

  4. sir my name gangesh chauhan intermediat qualifi in 2014 up bord percetage 72.8 and sir jee main 2016 entrance exam 84 no. but i am not pass because 2.1 % loss in 100 Please sir my admition cleare any gaverment college please sir i promise in 4 year b tech life i will best result in all student


    • Yes you hate this System.You know those people are poor they can’t go even go to a private school I am not saying that all general are rich and all sc/st are poor but I am talking in general they can’t afford a coaching,and now you want to compete with them.I am also a general candidate still I am in favour of reservation.
      Have you ever heard that a maid is a brahmin or a high class general candidate no rite? So how can you compare a officers student and a maid student.
      Now one more thing you can easily finish the reservation for our next generation just marry with a sc girl or sc boy and your child’s will be sc or gen whatever you want but now you will not marry….because they are of low caste…and this is the reason of reservation only.

      • but there are many sc candidates who are rich and can afford all kinds of high end educational amenities ma’am. the reservation should be based on the annual family income. and not caste. because most serious cast related issues have liquidated out. not that all SC,ST, are rich or privileged but so are lots of general caste people. so why deprive them of the benefit,and allow thousands of highly privileged people with the revised marking system?

      • actually the reality is….those sc/st who need reservation genuinely are far away with this….they are roaming around in villages with guns in there hands and are called naxalite, and those who are well off and can afford every thing are taking advantage…my friend who was more richer than me, had every facilities but instead of all that i was more intelligent and i scored better but…it’s my sin that i am a general.. i did every thing on my own will…but…you can see….my fault was….i am a general!! that’s all

      • Ohh…. Please don’t talk rubbish miss mansi… They are using this reservation for more than 60 years and still they are poor.. Do u think it’s our mistake to score good and getting worse and they, score bad and get the best it is now it is high time it should’ nt be caste based it should be on economically… It is just increasing conflicts….

        • Mr.Jagjeet first of all you should have the manners to talk to a girl and secondly reservations were made on seeing the economical conditions of the people and their respective village/hometown , but we cant do anything if you do not have complete knowledge and than also you are commenting.

        • Jagjeet, do you think that 60 yrs are enough for them who have been deprived so long. Also, do you know sc st population share (>then 50 of Indian Pop) and general are just 10-15pc, still are eating the bigger share of every thing. so pl dont think that just 18pc can bring equality among society.

      • Not at all they also have mind and there we go to give exam and it’s always there that all should be equal so why there is inequality only Ineed marks
        Not Al all right

      • sir why IIT is not ending the reservation and what is reason behind it. they not treat equally to all. I hate this system

      • Dear Mansi Shukla ..You should not go on the cast rather you should support the bifurcation system which will determine the annual income of a child’s family and not the cast . If a child is poor , he/she can be conducted in lower category and if he/she is rich ..the cutoff should be bit higher for them as compared to poor people . I m also from general cast but you should think for both so I request you to please support the bifurcation system. Thank You.

      • Both of u are 40-60% right…but the sysytem should apply the new rule of reservation based on annual income. Those who are in BPL category should get benefits of reservation and those who are in APL category should not ,thats it…..
