Delhi HC exempts four DSGMC run colleges from reserving seats for minority students
25.6.2012 (UNI) The Delhi High Court today exempted DSGMC run four Delhi University colleges from reserving 27 per cent of their seats for OBCs students for admission in academic year 2012-13 on the ground of being minority educational institutions.
A Vacation bench comprising justices V K Jain and Pratibha Rani gave the exemptions to SGTB Khalsa College, Guru Nanak Dev Khalsa College, Mata Sundari College and Guru Gobind Singh College of Commerce, accepting their pleas that they have been declared minority educational institutions by the National Commission for Minority Educational Institutions (NCMEI).
The court modified the May 29 order of its single judge bench which had directed these four colleges to abide by the University's directions, which had asked them to implement the 27 per cent reservation policy by admitting students belonging to SC, ST and OBC categories.
Four colleges run by Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee (DSGMC), constituted under the Delhi Sikh Gurdwaras Act, had approached the court challenging a single judge's order directing them to continue with the admission process in accordance with the DU guidelines which lay down reservation for the Schedule Castes (SC)/Scheduled Tribes (ST) and OBC students.
