    • Hi Priyanka, Yes there is hostel facility for MCA Students. Yes you can get government jobs, as I said NITs are Institutes of National Importance there shouldn’t be any doubt. If you perform well you will be observed into MNCs especially into IT firms. Are you particular about govt. jobs?

    • Hi Priyanka, Earlier I have told there is hostel facility in MANIT, Allahabad but the accommodation will not be available for first year PG Students. Sometimes hostel may be allotted sometimes it is difficult, I have confirmed this. But the hostel facility is there, it depends on the availability.

    • Hi Priyanka, All NITs are ‘Institutions of National Importance’ just like IITs, IIMs they are esteemed for the quality of education. They do come under AICTE.

    • Yes it is a deemed university, means that the Institute is declared to be as an university by the Government under Section 3 of the University Grants Commission (UGC) Act, 1956. Universities having deemed university status are known and recognised for good quality education.
