On Thursday, the Delhi Assembly adopted a resolution to reserve 85% of seats in 28 universities affiliated to Delhi University funded by the state government for city residents. Anyone who completes class 12 of a Delhi school may qualify.
Similarly, the Tamil Nadu government, through an order of June 22, has reserved 85% of the seats in the government medical schools for those who take the class 12 state examination.
The government Aam Aadmi Party in the capital said their request was reasonable, bearing in mind that these 28 colleges (more than 60 affiliates to the University of Delhi) are funded in whole or in part.
“We are not regionalists,” insisted Atishi Marlena, an adviser to the Minister of Education Delhi, Manish Sisodia. “Delhi taxpayers fund these colleges. Delhi University receives a large number of students from state boards, but there is no standardization entry or grades before the admission test.
This puts the candidates in Delhi [most of those who take the medical examination class of 12 Secondary Secondary Education] disadvantage. ”
In addition to the removal of the reservation, the city government also plans to request the Delhi University Law Amendment Center in 1922, as it prohibits the establishment of another affiliated university in the capital – although it has made an exception for The technical education Gobind Singh Indraprastha Guru University.
States are known to protect the interests of students who have graduated from their schools by reserving their seats in higher education.
But they usually do so in public universities and more often in state-recognized technical education programs. The University of Mumbai, for example, does not have separate seats or appellations – the minimum marks required for admission to a program – for outside students.
Maharashtra, but reserve seats at their engineering universities to state students. In Karnataka, university cutbacks are determined by the results of the Council of State, but some seats are empty – not reserved expressly – for Central Council students. In medical schools, however, 25% of seats are reserved for Karnataka students.
But the evolution of Delhi and Tamil Nadu are considered particularly transgressive. In the capital, the government arguing reserves in schools affiliated with a central university over which it has no control.
The University of Delhi was established by a law of Parliament and is funded by the University Scholarship Commission. And the decision of Tamil Nadu has urged the candidates of the Central Council of secondary schools to move the Supreme Court of Madras in protest.
Marlena believes that the proposal of the Delhi government requires a head movement of the Academic Council of the University of Delhi and the Court of Delhi University, authorities of the main institution.
But, as one of the deans said, “there is absolutely no possibility” of any of those entities to give their approval. “These schools are governed by the rules of the University Scholarship Commission (” Higher Education Regulations “), the salary, the retirement age and all other conditions of service,” said the dean.
There are no statistics on the exact proportion of students outside Delhi in the 28 schools – 12 of which receive all their funding from the city government, while the rest received only 5%. In general, the state spends about 300 CRS per year in all 28 institutions, Marlena said.
