Punjab Scheduled Caste Agriculture Students Association organised a meeting regarding the implementation of reservation in teaching at Punjab Agricultural University, at Circuit House on Wednesday.

The association members claimed PAU was not following the rule of Punjab government, Central government and UGC policies. They said that the provision of direct recruitment of SC and BC at PAU was there in the policies but the university was not following the rules.

Nirmal Singh, the president of the association, said, "According to Indian Council of Agriculture Research, these agricultural universities are only for the research basis. There are 70 agricultural universities across the country but this is the only university which is not following the policies as they are also doing research, teaching and extension, which is against the laws."


The members of the association said, "A letter to the higher authorities was sent but no reply has been received yet regarding this issue."


"The association appealed to the authorities to issue the required directions to the PAU.
