With the ongoing Delhi University admission process, Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal asked his deputy Manish Sisodia to look for the options in regard to quota for Delhi domicile students,if a quota can be fixed for those DU colleges which are financially aided by Delhi Government.

“I would request Manish to explore reserving 80-85% seats in these colleges. Even students of the city demands this and the political parties across the spectrum also supports this” said Kejriwal as quoted by Hindustan Times. However,contrary to this demand university officials said that DU is a Central University which means students from all over the country should be given equal importance. One of the top DU official said that even if they get 100% funding by Delhi government,they are under DU act and hence there cannot be a reservation based on domicile. However,reservation is possible in other state universities such as Ambedkar University Delhi and Guru Gobind Singh Indraprastha University but not at DU another official added.
