The five groups of experts under the Oversight Committee constituted to facilitate implementation of 27 per cent quotas in central educational institutions will meet on June 8 to help chalk out a roadmap for reservation.
Briefing reporters after the first meeting of the experts, committee chairman Veerappa Moily said June 8 has been fixed for the meeting since only one chairman of the sub groups could make it to Wednesday's meeting.
Moily declined to give details of what transpired in the meeting.
"However, the sub-groups will meet on June 8 to chalk out a broad based roadmap for implementation of reservation in central educational institutions while ensuring that the interests of those in the general category are also protected," Moily said.
"Expansion, inclusion and excellence" would be the buzzwords of the Oversight committee, Moily said adding the June 8 meeting will also decide to make the reservation roadmap "broad based" by holding consultations with other experts who are not part of the Committee.
"We will discuss how to go in for innovations to implement reservations but will also ensure that merit and brand names of elite institutions remain intact," he said.
