Education quota for OBCs Increases from 21% to 27% in Delhi

Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit has increased the education quota for the Other Backward Classes (OBC). Reservation for OBC applicants in government-aided and unaided institutions in higher education and technical education institutions will increase from 21 per cent to 27 per cent the next academic session (2012-13).

“The government has fulfilled its commitment to provide 27 per cent reservation for OBC students. The decision will go a long way in imparting higher education to students from weaker sections,” Dikshit said
