Law to restore reservation in central education institute

New Delhi: In its last meet on Thursday before the LS polls are announced, the Union Cabinet took 30 decis­ions, including nod of an Or­d­inance to restore univer­sity or college wise quota to SCs, STs and OBCs in appoi­nt­ment of teachers in the central edu instit­utions.

The Ordinance nullifies the Allahabad HC’s ruling in April 2017 for department-wise reservations that was upheld by the Supreme Court twice, including the review petition by the Centre.

The Central Educational Institutions (Reservation in Teachers’ Cadre) Ordinance holds university or college as a unit instead of dept for deciding the quota under the reservation.
