Now 50% DU quota for Sikhs

For the first time four DU colleges are considering reserving 50 per cent of their under-graduate seats for Sikh students.
Sri Guru Tegh Bahadur Khalsa College, in North Campus, is among the four colleges planning the reservation.
The colleges, all run by the Delhi Sikh Gurudwara Management Committee (DSGMC), were declared minority institutions last year by the National Commission for Minority Educational Institution. During this year’s admission season, the colleges will have a separate cut-off for Sikh students.
“We will reserve 50 per cent of the seats for Sikh students. For general category seats, students will be admitted as per university norms. There will be separate cutoffs to admit students to the minority seats. The dates for admissions will be according to the university and the college will remain as close to the university as it has been,” said Dr Jaswinder Singh, principal of SGTB Khalsa College.
The college will continue to provide three per cent reservation for physically handicapped students, both in general and Sikh quota, he said.
The other three colleges awarded the minority status in July last year are Sri Guru Gobind Singh College of Commerce, Sri Guru Nanak Dev Khalsa College and Mata Sundri College.
