Selected CEIs can raise quota for ST, SC students
STAFF WRITER 15:24 HRS IST
New Delhi, Jun 17 (PTI) Certain central educational institutions will
now be able to give reservation to more ST and SC students than what
is stipulated under law.
With the Union Cabinet, at a meeting chaired by Prime Minister
Manmohan Singh today, clearing a proposal to amend the Central
Educational Institutions (Reservation in Admission) Act, these
universities could get exemption from implementing 27 per cent quota
for OBCs in admission as required under the Act.
These universities, most of which are located in the North-East, will
be able to continue with 15 per cent reservation for STs even though
the CEI (Reservation in Admission) Act stipulates 7.5 per cent
reservation for them.
The Cabinet approved certain amendments to Sections 2,3,4 and 5 of the 2006 Act.
