After NEET, Now Demand to Have 27% Reservation for OBCs in CLAT


After the government has approved 27 per cent of reservations in medical colleges for students belonging to OBC background, now there is a demand to have the same for law colleges. While several LLB and LLM colleges offer OBC quota,  the All India OBC Students Association (AIOBCSA) claims that it is not properly implemented.

Highlighting their issue, the student body has also written a letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi seeking strict implementation of OBC reservations in the All India Quota seats of LLB and LLM courses of National Law Universities. AIOBCSA also requested the Government direct the NLUs to offer seats in All India Quota and strictly implement the reservations.

Currently, some NLUs neither provide seats in the All Inda Quota (AIQ) nor implement reservations in AIQ. “There shall be a uniform process for applying reservation policy in the seats allocated for the All India Quota. Some NLUs have not even followed SC and ST reservations in ALQs,” claim the student body.
