A day after Supreme Court’s verdict on OBC quota seats, Government on Friday made it clear that the University of Delhi (DU) would certainly provide 27 percent seats to candidates under OBC quota.
The SC on Thursday had ordered that the eligibility criteria for OBC candidates would not be decided on the basis of last cut-off of general category students. The court had said that the eligibility percentage of OBC candidates for admission in Central universities would be at the most 10 percent low than that of general category students.
HRD Minister, Kapil Sibal made it clear in Lok Sabha that the Supreme Court order on OBC reservation will be fully implemented in Delhi University. Replying to the debate on a Bill to amend the National Institutes of Technology Act, 2010; Sibal added, “Not a single seat of the OBC quota will go to the general category students in Delhi University.”
SC’s verdict has removed all the ambiguities that were prevailing over the implementation of the April 10, 2008 judgment as different central educational institutions were adopting different methods to admit OBC candidates.
