Manipur University Scheduled Caste Students’ Welfare Association has urged the Manipur University authority to clarify the distribution of seats before conducting Admission Tests of MA/MSc/M.Com/MLIS/MCA (First Semester) for the Academic year 2014-15.According to a press statement of the students’ body, it has been stated that Based on Principal Act “the Central Educational Institutions (Reservation in Admission) Act. 2006” thereafter called this act after amendment as “the Central Educational Institutions (Reservation in Admission) Amendment Act. 2012” defined clearly in Section  3 of the Amendment Act:-“Provided further that if there are no State seats in a Central Educational Institution and the seats reserved for the Scheduled Castes exceed the percentage specified under clause (i) or the seats reserved for the Scheduled Tribes exceed the percentage specified under clause (ii) or the seats reserved for the Scheduled Castes and the Scheduled Tribes taken together exceed the sum of percentage specified under clauses (i) and (ii), but such seats are- Less than fifty percent of the annual permitted strength on the date immediately preceding the date of commencement of this Act, the total percentage of the seats required to be reserved for the Other Backward Classes under clause (iii) shall be restricted to the extent such sum of percentages specified under clauses (i) and (ii) falls short of fifty per cent., of the annual permitted strength; More than fifty percent  of  the  annual  permitted  strength  on  the  date  of  immediately  preceding  the  date  of commencement of this Act, in that case no seats shall be reserved for the Other Backward Classes under clause (iii) but the extent of the reservation of seats for the Scheduled Castes and the Scheduled Tribes shall  not  be reduced in respect  of Central  Educational  Institutions in the specified north-eastern region.It means that the seats reserved for SC will not be less than 15%. This has totally contradicted to the seats distributed by the Manipur University as 2% that is accepted by High Court in their PIL no. 18 of 2014 with W.P.(C) no. 644 of 2014, the statement added.
