Government will "look into" the issue of reservation for OBCs in private unaided educational institutions.

"We will look into it," HRD Minister Kapil Sibal said to a question whether there would be reservation for OBCs in private and unaided educational institutions.

The government has implemented 27 per cent seats for OBCs in Central Educational Institutions. Most of these institutions are implementing the quota in a staggering manner.

The government has allocated additional funds towards enhancing infrastructure for increasing the seats to implement the OBC quota.

To another question on educational institutions facing difficulties in implementing the OBC quota, Sibal said that "all new policies have teething problems. We will look into all those things".

The 27 per cent quota in CEI has been implemented since 2007.
