The Centre’s decision to provide ten percent reservation to “poor” upper castes will not infringe upon the 50 percent quota for minority reservation but there is a chance that this could still affect the SC/ST/OBC population. This is because there are many SC/ST/OBC students who get in through the general category on merit. Take for example the University of Hyderabad — the University admitted 1747 students in the last academic year, 50 per cent of that would be 874 students. But 230 of the students in the general category are SC/ST/OBC students.


University Of Hyderabad 

Total admitted – 1747  | SC/ST/OBC – 1103  |  Number of SC/ST/OBC student in Gen Quota – 230

Reserved seats under new UCP (Poor Upper Caste) –  87
