Shimla, May 16 (IANS) The Himachal Pradesh University (HPU) has decided to create an extra seat and reserve it for single girl child in M.Phil courses, an official said here Sunday.
Earlier, the university created an extra seat in graduate and postgraduate professional courses and reserved it for girls who were the only child of their parents.
“Now we have decided to reserve one supernumerary seat for single girl child in all M.Phil courses also from this academic year on the pattern of postgraduate and undergraduate courses,” HPU Vice-Chancellor Sunil Kumar Gupta told IANS.
