BREAKING : No reservation at all in Minority Colleges (Aided and Unaided) both Religious and Linguistic in Mumbai - the cream of the cream. BU has 250 Minority Colleges affiliated to it.

I have been screaming about the 93rd Amendment since Day 1 - the ground has shifted in institutional/control space in India in the meantime. This is the story of inaction (hopefully not cowardice)
This is the story today : Essentially Minority Aided and Unaided in Mumbai are 100% reservation free.…
(thinking of how to explain issue to normal ppl)..
Let me try :

1. Post Stephens - minority aided could admit 50% from their own community
2. In the remained 50% quota there were laws imposing a quota shape.
3. In 2001, MH Govt ordered quota shape in 50% of OBC
Immediately challenged by Xaviers - the detente was (per my understanding) - SC/ST quota was allowed but no OBC quota. So the shape (in aided minority) was
15% Mgmt + 42.5% Minority + 11.25% for SC/ST and 38% Open.
In the mean time Sonia/CON passed the 93rd Amendment - which exempt aided and unaided from any quota. As time passes - and #core is ignored, this is the new normal here. In Nov 2017, Bombay HC declared the 2011 order unconstitutional
(2001 order) citing the 93rd Amendment. Now , minority colleges are :
15% mgmt (can attract elites) - 42.5% own minority - 42.% Open Category. What is amazing is how #IOI just nonchalantly uses new terminology -- next tweet.
Actual words : "Backward classes students shall be ENTITLED to compete in the open category on merit" - whoooaaaa !! this is the whole issue, milords. This is the 2017 order… #core1
Not to mention that minority aided have no reservation in teaching cadre. I have blogged about the Tamilnadu case : Prof Ilangovan vs TN. Also in minority aided schools. What will happen in 10 yrs? 20 yrs? They will change the landscape as they have in TN/KL. #core1
On top of this - MH govt and the PJ at the centre are not showing ANY signs of awareness. Instead introducing Tutoring Regulation laws and Fato steps.. H cant recover from 93rd - warning. /end

Egregious cases of #RTE as activist hit High Court : Children equally suffer due - now not everyone can understand the issue here and the deception… ; let me explain for benefit of public.
Imagine the following situation :

1 . You are a non-minority trust and have a school with 100 Seats. #RTE stipulates you set aside 25 seats for (whatever arbitrary quota Govt decides) -- all fine till now.
2. It is also the case that the 25 seats wuld have to be subsidized by your trust somehow - most likely by passing on burden to the other 75. Even here -- all fine till now. read on..

Dear @BJP4India - be aggressive and confront Rahul's "protect constitution" yatra. EXPLAIN that BJP has done so many constitutional amendments for protecting SC/ST rights. Here is a list (use this in every meeting)
1999 : 81st Amendment = carry forward rule
2001: 82nd Amendment = relaxation in qualifying marks

BOTH for SC/ST - done by BJP.
2003 : 85th Amendment = Consequential Seniority
BENEFITS SC/ST ; also done by @BJP4India not Congress

What does "Minority Status' achieve for Aided Colleges ?
#core1 Why are they fighting at this level?
1. It allows 50% quota for their own group
2. It immunizes them from 93rd Amendment Art 15(5)
3. There can be no OBC quota in aided minority (eg Loyola)
4. Most important --> NO FACULTY quota for any caste imposed - not even SC
5. Full freedom in recruitment
