IIMs announce 2007 Admission Results

April 27th, 2007

IIM Lucknow became first IIM to announce the list of successful candidates. “We have posted the list of candidates to be admitted on the institute’s website and have also informed the students through email,” said Director of the IIM, Devi Singh.

IIM Ahemdabad which was first to raise the voice against HRD ministry’s directive to put admissions on hold put up an announcement about the admissions on its website. Its director Bakul Dholakia told HT that they have just received the communication and the broad announcement would be available on the website by Friday night.

The students will, however, be required to individually check whether they have got admission in IIM A by entering their CAT reference number. “The link for the students to check whether they have got admission will be available on the website by evening,” Dholakia said.

But, IIM Kolkatta is expected to take a day to notify the successful candidates. “We have got the communication from the ministry and are looking into it. Within a day the students will be informed,” he said. HRD ministry officials expected that by Monday all IIMs would finalise the admission process.

No OBC Quota This Year : Supreme Court

April 23rd, 2007

Govt has no data, quota stayed: SC

“We are of the view that the impugned notification and enforcing the reservation for OBCs in the educational institutions must be put on hold as the Government has failed to provide any authentic or reliable data to justify its policy of reservation”

— The Bench

The Supreme Court on Thursday stayed the 27 per cent reservation for Other Backward Classes (OBCs) in elite educational institutions like IIMs and IITs. It added the Government’s decision to implement the quota system was full of flaws.

Supreme Court today rejected the Centre’s plea to vacate the stay on the implementation of 27 per cent OBC reservation in elite central educational institutions.

A Bench of Justice Arijit Pasayat and Justice L S Panta however said it would examine the Centre’s plea for referring the issue to a Constitution Bench.

The Bench gave the order after the Solicitor General G E Vahanvati made a forceful plea for vacating the stay while arguing that the Apex Court had no power to pass any final order on the subject.

The Solicitor General’s argument was that any final order on the matter can be passed only by a Constitution Bench and not by a two-judge Bench of the Apex Court.
