The issue of proposed reservation for OBCs in premier central institutes IITs and IIMs is likely to be discussed on Monday at a meeting of directors of all six Indian Institutes of Management (IIMs), sources in IIM (Ahmedabad) said in Ahmedabad.

IIMA director Bakul Dholakia said that the media would be informed when the reservation matter comes up for discussion in Monday's meeting.

He said the date of meeting of IIM directors was decided in January 2006 and the meeting was not fixed after the reservation issue cropped up. He refused to divulge the agenda of the meeting.

Union Human Resource Minister Arjun Singh has announced a plan to implement 27 per cent reservation in central institutions after the Assembly elections in five states.
