Delhi University concludes first cut off list admission

He added that he wrote to the then HRD Minister Smriti Irani and the present HRD Minister Prakash Javadekar and pushed for the demand to reserve 85 per cent seats in the Delhi government-funded colleges of Delhi University for the local students, but to no avail. "The money of tax payers from Delhi is being used to fund these colleges... the House hereby resolves that 85 per cent seats should be reserved for students from Delhi, in the colleges that are funded by the Delhi government", the resolution said. She says, "Delhi has the privilege of having six central universities". The Delhi University Teachers' Association (DUTA) passed a unanimous resolution on Friday to oppose the proposal.

"DU, being a central university, has a universal and national character". Delhi University is renowned as a cultural melting pot where students from diverse states and cultural backgrounds come together under one roof for the singular goal of education. "The BJP, and now AAP has made these promises without respecting the nature of University of Delhi".

There are as many as 63 colleges in the Delhi University, with 56,000 seats for the undergraduate programmes. DU was created by an Act of Parliament and all Acts and statutes of the university are reported in Parliament and approved by the Visitor. "It is our responsibility to safeguard the interest of Delhi students since the funding of these colleges are coming for the city's taxpayers", Manish Sisodia told Catch.

"To expand the capacity of higher education, most of the states are free to open universities". The University of Delhi Act 1922 expressly forbids the opening of any other affiliating universities.

Portugal win Bronze at FIFA Confederations Cup
The decisive goal was scored by Portugal's Adrien Silva from the penalty shot during the 104th minute of the game. They went on to lose the chance to go ahead when Andre Silva lost a penalty kick in the first half.

Mr. Sisodia added that the reservation would apply to women who had got married and moved to Delhi, but had graduated from elsewhere.

While both the resolutions were passed by voice vote, Sisodia, who also holds the education portfolio, said, "If the administration cannot give 85% reservation, it can at least give relaxation of 5-10% in the cut-off marks to Delhi students".

Maharashtra also reserves 25% seats for Maharashtra students in engineering colleges and as does Karnataka for its students in medical and engineering colleges in the state.
