Reservations

In India, Reservation rules are governed by the Central government for central government colleges and state government for state government colleges. Most of the private institutions do not provide any kind of reservations.

In India, Reservation has become a hot topic of discussion as every student wants to join government institutions but Reservations create a bar for Students who can not avail reservations. It was done for the upliftment of Society but now it has become a shortcut for success therefore many societies fight for reservations, create so much disturbance in normal life.In India, UGC provides financial assistance to universities for the establishment of Special Cells for SC/STs. The cells help universities implement the reservation policy in student admission and staff recruitment processes for teaching and non-teaching jobs.
