Backward Commission warns Hyderabad University to conduct immediate and fair enquiry in OBC issues


Hyderabad: National Commission of Backward Classes(NCBC) questioned Hyderabad University for not taking sufficient action to the demands of OBC students. All India OBC Students Association(AIOBCSA) has been organizing a relay Satyagraha since December 24 by highlighting disparities over OBC admission and faculty recruitment.

The commission made an enquiry to University after a complaint received from Kiran Kumar, President of AIOBCSA. In the letter NCBC has promised to take detailed immediate action to the demands of protesting students in campus.

As per the letter commission raised the issues of two PhD candidates Adduri Muktheshwar and Harshini Devi. NCBC asks clarification about University's stand on the 'research publication and research experience certificate' issue of AdduriMuktheshwar. Problem of an OBC student Harshini Devi is also mentioned in the letter by NCBC. As per the UGC Guidelines 2016, 45% of the written marks is the cutoff for OBC candidates to get call for the interview. NCBC claims Harshini has not called for the interview despite of securing 62% (44 marks) in the written test.

The Backward Classes Commission asks the University to send action taken report on 'most urgent category and urgent category issues' of OBC students in campus immediately as possible. While speaking with Madhyamam, Gowd Kiran Kumar said AIOBCSA has full hope that justice will be done with NCBC's intervention.

"In response to our letter, NCBC has sent letter to the Vice Chancellor Appa Rao to respond on various issues in three days. We have raised serious violations and deviations of reservation policies". He added.

The Commission also questions the administration for issuing show cause notices to the office bearers of the Staff Union of Hyderabad University. It states, the issued notices are not coming under the Trade Union Act. Commission highlights the UGC guidelines of 2006 that is being followed in PhD admissions.

AIOBCSA has been addressing their demands on reservation implementation, proper admission process and faculty recruitment for OBCs. Earlier on November 2020, NCBC made a visit to University to hear directly about OBC issues and demands in campus space. After that administration has received several notices from the Commission regarding these demands. In response to this, UoH Vice chancellor had asked NCBC to reconsider its directives on OBC admissions and reservation process.

However, in the latest letter NCBC has informed the University administration that if the report does not reach the commission within three days of time it will call officials for personal appearance in the matter for non-compliance.
