Undoubtedly girls have outshined boys in every educational aspect this year. They have portrayed a true symbol of empowerment. Say it in any recognizable board CBSE, ICSI, UP etc. the passing percentage of girls remained the highest.

Considering the higher percentage of girls succeeding in the terms of education, some Pre-University government and government-aided colleges in Bengaluru have set a higher cut-off for girls as compared to that of boys this admission season.

The administration of colleges are concerned about the gender majority. Vice-Chancellor of Christ University, Fr Abraham VM stated “Girls are smart and and this is not a new trend. If there is no higher cut-off, the college will have only girls. Higher cut-off is to bring in gender balance.”

The cut off in Christ University for girls has been set to 93.92% and that of boys is 91.04% for Science students.

Few months ago, the Department of Pre- University education had set asked the Bengaluru higher education colleges to set a seat-matrix for girls to empower the girls’ education. Though, some of the Bengaluru universities have now rolled back due to increasing no. of girls admission and percentage.

Though, some experts have raised concern in this matter and are countering the decision taken. “Setting higher cut-off marks for girls is illegal and discriminatory,” one of the legal experts say.

“If you have a higher cut-off for girls, then lesser girls will join colleges. Unless there is a reasonable basis, you cannot have such discrimination. Like the demand for reservations for women in Parliament has a reasonable basis, whatever discrimination you do has to be on the basis of logic, a reasonable basis and for equity,” says lawyer Veena Krishnan.
