For BA Economics, the cut-off for COTHs is 91.75% but 93.75% for CSTs. For B.Sc programme, COTHs is 81.66% but CSTs need 90%.Hence, For all the courses at St. Stephen’s College , the cut-offs for CSTs are either higher or the same as COTHs.

The group added “There is no rationality on how Christian ST and Christian Others differ as far as the teaching of Christianity is concerned,” the group added that the difference in cut-offs was a violation of their constitutional rights. It also violates the ethics of the college and Christianity, by dividing the Christian community into different groups.”

The Group asked the college Principal to intervene into this matter calling the cut-offs “total injustice” and “discrimination” towards the Christian tribals.
