The Human Resource Development, HRD ministry has approved nearly 646 new teaching posts in different departments of Delhi University and its affiliated colleges. This sanction will come in handy to meet the requirements for execution of the OBC reservation quotas. Continuing in this pattern, UGCs will also receive a huge financial grant for making sure that students applying under the OBC quota aren’t denied admissions besides the provision for recurring grants.
In fact, the first monetary instalment has already been discharged. In additions to this, the Delhi Government would provide additional funding to 12 DU colleges that function under its direct jurisdiction. These financial aids were necessary as the Supreme Court had ordered the merging of OBC seats in the General category and this needed the immediate expansion of the University’s infrastructure.
