New Reservation Policy for OBCs in JNU

New Delhi: The standing committee on admissions of Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) is about to reconsider the decision taken on the commencement of a new reservation policy for the Other Backward Classes (OBCs). The new formulation will abide by the directives issued by the Supreme Court and the Ministry of Human Resource and Development (MHRD).
The matter of OBC’s reservation in Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) was proposed in the late night of Thursday i.e. March 18, 2010, in theAcademic Council’s meeting.
The forum in the campus of JNU, which is demanding the implementation of reservation policy, had been on hunger strike. Their strike was about the ten 10 marks reduction in cut-off, what they think is becoming a restraining factor for the eligible OBC candidates.
A member of the Academic Council’s stated that the dean of schools would receive the standing committee report for approval. As per the ongoing admission procedure, Jawaharlal Nehru University permits 27% reservation for students belonging to the OBC category.
