...According to AICTE chairman Anil Sahasrabuddhe, a majority of its recognised private institutes provide reservation for students as directed by the state they are located in.
“With the exception of Rajasthan and West Bengal, almost all state governments make it mandatory for technical institutes and colleges to provide reservation for SC, ST and OBC students,” Sahasrabuddhe told The Indian Express.

93rd Constitutional amendment of 2006 by UPA1 already specifies reservation to be applicable to all private higher institutions - aided or unaided while specifically excluding mainority institutions from the reservation as per the provisions of our mainority pasand Constitution.Education is in Concurrent list where the central law has precedence over state laws
25. Education, including technical education, medical education and universities, subject to the provisions of Entries 63, 64, 65 and 66 of List I; vocational and technical training of labour.
26. Legal, medical and other professions.
Based on above amendment already majority of private institutions have been offering such reservations based on the respective state laws mandating the same.
Now the central govt is going to pass a law which will subsume all such state level reservation laws under a single law where reservations(SC/ST & OBC & EWS) are made uniformly applicable to all pvt institutions.
What is shameless is that such a maniority pasand constitution has been foisted on Indians for 65 years, in what should actually have been a truly secular State called India.Nihat wrote:Just how shameless can this government be. Things are even more disappointing when the expectation was so much more
The SC's mainority pasand interpretation of already a mainority pasand Constitution in the end has resulted in far ranging mainority exemptions in field of education & law as seen in RTE and reservation laws as above.Wonder which govt will have both the motivation and power(i.e numbers to amend constitution and to rein in the mainority pasand selfappointing SC judges) to set right these mainority pasand aberrations on a secular state ?
Reservation in minority colleges: SC rejects govt plea, MU to resume admissions today
Published: July 14, 2018
The Supreme Court on Friday dismissed a special leave petition filed by the state government against a Bombay High Court ruling that said minority colleges would not have reservations for backward category students.
The Supreme Court on Friday dismissed a special leave petition filed by the state government against a Bombay High Court ruling that said minority colleges would not have reservations for backward category students. The university will declare the third merit list on July 18. The Supreme Court upheld the ruling of the Bombay High Court and held that it has dismissed similar petitions based on the constitutional amendment of 2005.
This year, the university changed its admission process and eliminated reservations for backward category students in accordance with a Bombay High Court order. The court had, in November 2017, ordered that minority colleges, which have a 50 per cent reservation for students belonging to a minority community, would not have reservations for SC/ ST and OBC category students.
The order referred to a 2005 constitutional amendment that exempts minority institutions from reservations. According to Article 15(5) of the Constitution of India, minority institutions under Article 30 shall be exempt from constitutional reservations — an amendment inserted by the then Congress government. Following protests by student groups, the state government filed a special leave petition before the Supreme Court. The petition came up for hearing on Friday but was dismissed.
