Finding it difficult to implement the new OBC quota comprehensively from the coming academic session, Delhi University could approach the Centre seeking more time to implement the reservation.
"It is doubtful whether we will be able to implement the reservation comprehensively in the coming academic session. In that case, as per Section 5 (2) of the new reservation Act, we will approach the government to give us more time for implementing the quota system completely," varsity registrar AK Dubey told.
Under this provision, the government can give more time — up to three years for implementing the quota, he said.
"It is difficult to implement the full OBC quota at one go," Dubey said.
The university is now making a detailed assessment about its requirement of additional teachers and other staff as well as facilities for implementing 27 per cent reservation for OBCs.
