Hope you have got a clear idea about the non departmental subjects and the conditions to be satisfied in order to select a course. If you still have any query, feel free to ask us. Just drop a comment below, we will get back to you as soon as possible.

  1. So my question is if many number of people like above 60 students select same elective it’s because they think that that particular elective is comfortable for them.so according to ktu rule I know it’s not possible. But we should look up on the students interest also. So I don’t think that this range like 50 to 60 number of students is not necessary. Let give the equal rights to all students. And give priority to only their interests. As many complaints has been registered through this criteria. So better to remove that criteria. And let the students take their like subjects.

  2. It was very much helpful. Please keep up the good work.
