Delhi Technological University – DTU Admission 2015
The Delhi High Court ( HC ) has ruled that the Delhi based universities will have to give equal reservation to physically disabled students as available to reserved category students in order to avoid discrimination.
The court stated that it will be discriminatory if DTU ( Delhi Technological University ) provides only 5% relaxation in its admission process to disabled students as compared to 10% reservation for SC / ST candidates and directed the varsity to equalize its relaxation norms for disabled candidates to that of reserved category.
The court further stated that physically disabled people are equally socially backward as the reserved category and thus, as per the constitutional norms, they should get at least equal relaxation as available to SC / ST students.
The court was asked to answer whether DTU that offers technical courses should extend the relaxation provided to reserved category students for admission to BTech programs to disabled students or not.
The directive follows a petition filed a 50% physically disabled candidate seeking admission to DTU. As per the plea, he took AIEEE Exam and was eligible to be considered for admission to DTU. He scored 52.66% in Class XII ( PCM ), while minimum eligibility for disabled candidates in the university is 55%. Therefore the university did not consider him for admission to BTech computer science program.
Apart from ruling the university to offer 10% relaxation to disabled candidates, the court also ordered it to grant admission to the petitioner, if he is eligible for the same. With this, the minimum eligibility criterion for disabled persons becomes 50% in Physics, Chemistry and Maths.
As per the admission policies of DTU, it provides admission to general category candidates with 60% marks in Class XII, relaxation of 10% to SC / ST students ( ie 50% in Class XII ) but only 5% relaxation to physically challenged candidates ( ie 55% marks in Class XII ).
