GEMI= General category, Engineer, Male, I.T . An Indian Slang..Owing to latest decisions in Indian Institutes of Management( IIM) to favor girls in admission process this was made. In India you are from reserved category or General category based on your family name and caste system. Indian goverment makes it mandatory for IIM to atleast take 50% reserved category student( irrespective of your entrance scores). Now of remaining 50% girls are given a quota and for bringing in diversity in the batch people from NON-IT and prefarably NON_ Engineers are given preference. Hence being a GEMI( general category Engineer graduate, Male, Working in IT industry) is a curse if you want to go to IIM.
