NALSAR Rejoinder To TPCC

Hyderabad, May 7 (Maxim News): Prof. V Balakrishna Reddy, Registrar, NALSAR University of Law, today refuted the remarks of Dr Sravan Dasoju, national spokesperson of AICC, that NALSAR University was violating the rule of reservation. He asserted that it was functioning as per the NALSAR University Act of 1998.

In a statement here on Tuesday, University Registrar Prof V Balakista Reddy said the University Act was amended in 2010 and Section 5-A was inserted in the Act. The amended section laid down that there should be reservation of seats in the courses in favour of Scheduled Castes, Scheduled Tribes, Physically Challenged Persons, Women and resident students of Andhra Pradesh (now Telangana).

The amendment also specified that the reservation to the local candidates (resident students) will be only to the extent of twenty per cent. Thus, it was clear that the NALSAR Amendment Act of 2010 did not include BC reservation and Legislative Assembly itself did not provide for 85% local reservation. Some other Law Universities such as National Law School of India University, Bangalore and National Law University, Delhi do not have either BC or local reservation. However, in some of the NLUs, the local reservation is to the extent of 10% to 25% only, he pointed out. He also said NALSAR had not received any communication either from the President of India under Article 371D or from the State Government to reserve 85% seats for the local candidates. (Maxim News)
