Non-Implementation of reservations in AIQ in NLS would result in legal consequences, Wilson to NLUs VCs
As per the constitutional mandate, the National Law School and Universities should also reserve exact state reservations in AIQ, state and local domicile seats,” he said.
The ruling Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam’s Rajya Sabha MP and senior counsel P Wilson wrote to all the state chief secretaries and vice-chancellors of National Law Schools and Universities that their failure in implementing the exact reservations for Other Backward Class (OBC) students and Scheduled Caste / Scheduled Tribes (SC/ST) students in state surrendered All India Quota (AIQ) seats will certainly result in legal consequences.
According to the senior counsel, he had recently raised this demand to all the universities, but RMLNU, Lucknow and NUASL, Kochi only have responded positively claiming that they are implementing the exact state reservations in All India Seats and State / Local Domicile seats in National Law Schools and Universities offered by them for the OBCs, SC/STs.
“As an outcome of the legal fight of the DMK, the Supreme Court has recently upheld and ensured 27% of reservations for OBCs in the state has given AIQ seats for medical and dental admissions. As per the constitutional mandate, the National Law School and Universities should also reserve exact state reservations in AIQ, state and local domicile seats,” he said.
He further added that we cannot wait for someone to go for the court to grant the state reservations in NLUs.
“The failure in granting the exact state reservation in AIQ, state and local domicile in law education in NLUs is against the Article 15 and 45 of the constitution. I would like to remind this non-implementation of this reservation will inevitably attract legal consequences,” Wilson noted.
