Central Educational Institutions (Reservations in Teachers’ Cadre) Bill-2019 has been passed by the Lok Sabha.
The bill is aimed to provide reservation in appointments of teachers in Central Educational Institutions by direct recruitment of persons belonging to Scheduled Castes, Scheduled Tribes, Educationally Backward Classes and Economically Weaker Sections.
In his answer to one of the questions during Lok Sabha Session, Union Human Resource Development Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank said, “The bill is aimed at implementing 200-point reservation system instead of 13-point roster system to fill up teacher vacancies in Universities and Central Government Higher Educational Institutions.”
Reiterating the Central Government’s commitment to to provide equal opportunity to all as per the Constitution, the minister said, “This bill gives enough scope and opportunities in higher education sector in the country.”
“The NDA government led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi is thinking for the welfare of the poorest of the poor at the grassroots level,” Nishank added.
