New Delhi: The Union Cabinet on Thursday approved the HRD Ministry’s proposal to bring an Ordinance to restore 200-point roster system for reservation in faculty jobs in higher education.
On Tuesday, HRD Minister Prakash Javadekar had reiterated the government’s commitment to the old formula for reservation in teaching jobs in higher education.
Last week, the apex court upheld the Allahabad High Court judgment favouring the 13-point roster for the third time. The High Court had ruled that reservation in faculty positions in universities should be calculated department-wise and not by taking the total seats in a university as the basis.
The judgment and subsequent UGC order of March 2018 implementing the verdict had irked political parties with a substantial support base among SC/ST and OBC communities because it results in limited seats available for recruitment by each department under reserved categories.
