|Will look into OBC quota
for pvt educational institutes: Sibal
NEW DELHI: As he assumed
charge, HRD minister Kapil Sibal promised to look into the implementation
of OBC reservation in private unaided educational
"We will look into all
such issues," Sibal told reporters when asked about his plans with regard
to implementation of OBC reservation in private and unaided educational
institutes considering that his predecessor Arjun Singh had gone half way
by introducing quota in government institutions.
The government has implemented
27% seats for OBCs in Central Educational Institutions (CEI). Most of these
institutions are implementing the quota in a staggering manner.
The government has allocated
additional funds towards enhancing infrastructure for increasing the seats
to implement the OBC quota.
To another question on
educational institutions facing difficulties in implementing the OBC quota,
Sibal said that "all new policies have teething problems. We will look
into all those things".
The 27% quota in CEI has
been implemented since 2007.
