The Government on Friday announced that it will bring an Ordinance or Bill if the Supreme Court rejects the review petition on the reservation on faculty Quota Order, issued by HRD Ministry, originally issued by Allahabad High Court.

With continued agitation over this issue, the HRD Minister Prakash Javadekar stated in the House saying till such time no recruitment will be allowed in universities.

He also stated the facts as to what effects will come into action for SC/ST/OBC in 30 universities if the order gets approved.

“The government has decided to bring an ordinance or a Bill should the review petition be rejected by the Supreme Court,” he said. “Till then no recruitment will be allowed.”

The government has decided to file a review petition in Supreme Court after the SLP on faculty Quota order was rejected by the SC.

The Faculty Quota order was initially issued by UGC, originally issued by Allahabad High Court, which states that individual department will be considered as a base unit for calculating reservations for faculty positions.
