Jamia Millia Islamia University gets minority institution Status

Jamia gets minority institution tag

New Delhi: Jamia Millia Islamia University was on Tuesday granted minority institution status by the National Commission for Minority Educational Institutions, a first for any central university which will allow it to reserve up to 50 per cent seats for Muslims.
“We have no hesitation in holding that Jamia was founded by the Muslims for the benefit of the Muslims and it never lost its identity as a Muslim minority educational institution,” chairman of the commission Justice MSA Siddiqui said in his judgment.
The varsity will no longer have to give reservation to SC and ST students. PTI
