Ahmedabad : A fiat from the state government's Admission Committee for
Professional Courses (ACPC) to the Nirma University (NU), Pandit
Deendayal Petroleum University (PDPU) and Dhirubhai Ambani Institute
of Information and Communication Technology (DAIICT) regarding
reservation for SC, ST and OBC categories in admissions has landed
these prestigious private institutes in a dilemma.

While all the professional and technical institutes in the state were
following the admission policy set by the Union HRD ministry granting
reservation to SC, ST and OBC categories, the three private
universities were not.

ACPC member-secretary M N Patel said the directive has warned these
three institutes that the ACPC would not approve the admission list
even if there was the slightest violation in this regard.

Patel said while NU and PDPU had halted the admission process and were
deliberating how to implement the reservation policy in admissions,
DAIICT had already completed the admissions as they had been doing for
the last 10 years. Patel said the ACPC would not ratify the merit list
of DAIICT under any circumstances. "They will have to revise it as per
HRD ministry's policies," he said, adding even institutes like IIM-A
implemented the reservation policy.

NU vice-chancellor R R Vasani confirmed the receipt of ACPC's letter.
"We are discussing with the government how to go about it."

However, DAIICT director S C Sahasrabuddhe said: "We have already
completed admissions in the same way as we had been doing for ther
last 10 years." Asked whether the reservation policy of HRD ministry
was followed, he said, "I don't know about and I can't comment on it."

PDPU director general Paritosh K Banik said the university authorities
were discussing the matter.
