After a number of allegations posed to medical colleges for caste biasness, now its turn for Delhi University (DU) to answer to the plea challenging its admission process for degree courses for the reserved category students this year.

Delhi High Court has issued notices to the Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) and DU directing them to respond by October 11, 2012 to the petition filed by some students claiming that admission process of the University for SC/ST students was caste biased.

Students claimed that admission process for SC/ST students was discriminated against that of general category students. General category students could apply online from any corner of the country while, reserved category students were asked to visit the campus personally with all their original documents even for purchasing application forms. Due to this many SC/ST outstation candidates could not apply.

Moreover there were differences in the University’s prospectus for general category and reserved category students. The information bulletin for general students was a 70 page colored, printed prospectus comprising of all the useful information in detail with the message of Vice-Chancellor while that of reserved category students comprised of shabbily printed eight pages without any required information.

Further the general students were eligible to apply for all or any of the colleges and courses while SC/ST students could not.

A SC/ST student could apply for only 30 choices which is far less to cover even one course offered by about 30-40 colleges. Also students had to mention their choices on preference basis and computer allotted the seats on the basis of the merit and array of choice.

The petitioners claimed that DU took up a common procedure for general category and OBC students while a different method for SC/ST students.

Only SC/ST candidates were subject to the discriminatory admission procedure while OBC were treated normally although both OBC and SC/ST are regulated by the same Act.

Further hearing on the case is scheduled for October 11, 2012.
