“If we get any direction from the human resource development ministry on the quota issue, we will act accordingly,” Vij told reporters, while announcing the date of the availability of the admission forms.
The sale and receipt of forms for admissions to over 70 colleges are affiliated to the university will start on June 1 and will continue till June 15. The Supreme Court has issued an injunction on a new law providing for 27 per cent quota for OBC students in centrally funded institutes of higher education.
