The Delhi High Court has exempted Delhi University’s four minority colleges from reserving 27 percent seats to Other Backward Classes (OBCs) students for the current academic year.


On a petition filed by Mata Sundari College seeking exemption from the rule as it was a minority-run institution, the Delhi High Court passed this order on May 30.


Four minority colleges — Guru Tegh Bahadur Khalsa College, Guru Gobind Singh College, Mata Sundari College and Guru Nanak Dev Khalsa College — will not have to reserve seats for OBC students during the 2014-15 session, the HC ruled in its order. 


Delhi University Joint Dean of Students Welfare and Media Cordinator Malay Neerav said the four minority colleges will not need to reserve quota for OBC under constitutional norms.

The court, however, held that all the four colleges have to offer reservation in admission for Schedule Castes or Scheduled Tribes students as per the guidelines of the University.


The four minority institutions come under the management of Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee constituted under the Sikh Gurdwara Act, 1971.


Challenging the university order claiming MEI status, the colleges, in their plea, had said that the Supreme Court had ruled minority educational institutions (MEI), aided by the government or unaided, were not obliged for reserving seats for OBCs.



Amid this development, 2014 admission process in the renowned University is beginning from June 2. The central university will be inviting a common OMR application form for admissions to 54,000 seats in 65 colleges. The last date for applications is June 16.


DU is likely to continue with 10 or more cut off lists under its 2014 undergraduate admission process which is scheduled to begin from June 2.

The University is scheduled to release the list of first 10 cut-offs in a window of 30 days beginning June 24. According to University officials, the dates of the release of DU’s 10 cut off lists are June 24, June 27, July 1, July 4, July 8, July 11, July 14, July 16, July 18 and July 21 respectively.


Delhi University is also conducting open day sessions to address queries of the prospective students and their parents regarding undergraduate admissions since May 21. The Open Days will continue till May 31.
