Assam Education Minister Ranoj Pegu in a statement said: “The 75% reservation of seats for Assam board learners will not be appropriate in urban spaces. In urban spaces, learners from all boards will have to compete for a place in degree programs. It will be solely based on their merit.”
The 75:25 reservation quota for the complete state would seize a large number of deserving students from a place in undergraduate programs as most institutions affiliated to CBSE and different boards largely exist in urban areas.
While many academicians have sought the withdrawal of the state-board quota, many CBSE and CISCE students have expressed their concerns over this reservation.
