"The SC/ST category students are being compelled to take admission in
reservation seats only even when they had scored more and have
qualified for general category seats. It is mandatory that the SC/ST
category students with higher merit be given admission in general
category seats and allowed to make their choice of colleges.
Therefore, the admissions to BEd for the academic year 2011-12 needs
to be cancelled and the whole process should be done again,'' the

reservation policy then it will exercise its power conferred under

SU authorities to submit its response to the notice within a
stipulated time frame.
