More Faculty Jobs for OBC/SC/STs | Govt restored 200-point Roster in Faculty Jobs

The Union Cabinet's decision to restore the 200-point roster system has brought cheer to students and teachers across the country who have relentless protesting for months. The students and teachers also went on a nation wide bandh on March 5 to protest against the new roster system. 

The switch from department-wise (13-point and old) reservation to university-wise (200-point) to  in faculty positions in universities and colleges is expected to make a big increase in SC/ST and OBC representation among teachers. This is evident from the projection made by the Union government in its review petition filed in the Supreme Court last month. If reservation is implemented university-wise, the total posts across SCs, STs and OBCs in 21 central universities will increase from 1,241  to 2,663.
