SC dismisses review plea against department-wise quota for faculties

FILE PIC: DD News
The Supreme Court on Wednesday said that individual departments and not universities or colleges will be considered as the unit for implementing reservation for SC/ST or OBC in the appointment of faculties members. 

The apex court rejected the Centre's plea seeking review of its earlier verdict by which it had declined to interfere with a decision of the Allahabad High Court on the crucial quota issue.

The top court also dismissed the prayer for an open court hearing of the Centre's review petition.

A bench of Justices U U Lalit and Indira Bannerjee dismissed the review petitions filed by Centre, the University Grants Commission (UGC) and several individual petitioners. 

It said that appeals of the Centre, the UGC and other individual petitioners were dismissed as the findings in the order of the high court was found to be correct.

The apex court had on January 21st, dismissed the appeals of the Centre and UGC against the order of Allahabad High Court which had ruled that quota for SC/ST or OBC in posts of faculty will be calculated department-wise and not College or University-wise.
