The Supreme Court on Wednesday issued notices to the Centre and IITs on a petition seeking directions to them to follow reservation policy in admission in research degree programmes as also recruitment of faculty members.
A Bench led by Justice LN Rao asked the Centre and IITs to respond to the petition filed by SN Pandey after his counsel Ashwani Kumar Dubey submitted that the IITs were not following the reservation policy.
- Plea states IITs are completely violating the reservation policies that provide for quota to the SC (15%), ST (17%) and OBC (27%) communities
“The IITs are violating the reservation policies that provide for reservation to the SC (15%), ST (17%) and OBC (27%) communities,” the petitioner submitted.
The petitioner also urged the top court to issue necessary directives for the creation of a mechanism for resolving students’ complaints and to set up a panel of technical experts to review the performance of the existing faculty members.
Pandey demanded cancellation of the appointment of certain appointments over the violation of reservation norms and framing of a transparent recruitment policy.
