DU rejects quota for Delhiites

Views: 350

Delhi University has rejected the Delhi government’s proposal for reserving 85 percent of seats in state government-funded colleges for students from the city, citing its central character.

The DU assistant registrar (academic), in response to a letter by principal secretary R K Verma, department of IT, wrote: “I am directed to convey that the University of Delhi, being a central university, the proposal submitted by you for reservation of seats in admission in DU colleges for students passing XII from the schools in Delhi cannot be acceded to.”

In a letter, Verma had drawn the attention of DU VC, Dinesh Singh, “to the shortage of institutions of higher learning in Delhi to provide admissions to all students passing higher secondary examination from Delhi schools. Students from Delhi have to go to areas outside Delhi for higher studies… It also takes away opportunity for availing admission in undergraduate and postgraduate courses….”

Reservation in DU has become a political issue. While BJP has been demanding reservation for a long time, the Congress government, in one of its last order, decided to seek 85 percent reservation in 12 of the colleges fully funded by it and 50 percent seats in 16 colleges that are receiving 5 percent funding from state government.
