    Will bring Ordinance if SC rejects review petition: Javadekar

    New Delhi:  Union Minister Prakash Javadekar assured on Monday that the Centre was committed to reservation and will bring an Ordinance if the Supreme Court rejects its review petition challenging the changes made in the reservation mechanism for university faculties.

    Javadekar made the remarks in the Lok Sabha during Question Hour after the Samajwadi Party (SP), Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) and other opposition parties demanded that the earlier system should be re-introduced, contending that the new system deprives the Scheduled Castes (SC), Scheduled Tribes (ST) and Other Backward Classes (OBC) of benefits of reservation in higher educational institutions.

    "The 13-Point Roster won't be implemented. The government will file a review petition and if needed, we will bring an Ordinance," he said.

    SP's Dharmendra Yadav, earlier accused the government of not implementing reservation while recruiting teaching staff in higher educational institutions and demanded that the Centre should bring a bill to protect the interests of the SC, ST and OBCs.

    The University Grants Commission (UGC) announced last March that an individual department should be considered as the base unit to calculate the number of teaching posts to be reserved for SC and ST candidates following an order by the Allahabad High Court in April 2017.
