Who is the Nodal Agency to implement educational concession for SC/ST students?

Appellant submitted a copy of UGC circular dated 19.08.2009 vide which all the universities receiving grant-in-aid were asked to provide reservations to SC/ST students & sought information about its implementation The CIC observed that the UGC is passing the buck to Ministry of Human Resource Development (HRD) and MHRD was saying that information is not available. The CIC directed the UGC wing of MHRD and UGC to collect the information from the universities / deemed universities about implementation of extended reservation and concession to SC/ST students in Self financing courses offered by the respective institutions & provide it. A show cause notice was issued to the PIO of HRD to show-cause why maximum penalty should not be imposed for non-furnishing of complete and correct information to the appellant.


It is sometimes seen that some organisations issue circulars without providing for a means for its monitoring its implementation. It makes little sense for an organisation to issue a circular if its implementation cannot be monitored.
