Quota issue in AP high court

Hyderabad (Aug 18): Amid the claims and counter-claims, just how many Muslim youth make it to professional courses, the Andhra Pradesh High Court is considering the State government order granting five per cent quota for Muslims. Independent of this, Deccan Chronicle collated just how many seats Muslims had got in Engineering and Medical courses this year. 

The finding was startling to say the least. In both cases, Muslims got less than 2.5 per cent of the seats. Muslim students, especially the impoverished ones, suffer a lot more be-cause they have to shell out huge donations if they are to enter minority colleges which sell seats in the management quota.

According to official sources, 30,286 students took admission in the Engineering stream under open category for 2004-2005. Of these, 749, or 2.47 per cent, are Muslims. The government has kept aside 2,940 seats awaiting the High Court verdict on the five per cent quota case.

In Medicine, of the 1,755 open seats, the total number of Muslim candidates who got admission is about 40. It works out to about 2.2 per cent. In all, 140 seats have been kept aside for the High Court verdict on the five per cent quota case. The picture is not much better in minority institutions. Statistics reveal that 4,853 seats in 33 Muslim minority educational institutions were reserved under the 55 per cent minority quota. In these, 2,609 Muslim students were admitted. 

In Deccan Medical College, the lone minority institution in the medical stream, the convener has filled 59 seats out of 150 with minorities under the changed rule of admissions. A majority of the students who came for counseling in the open category are from the twin cities, an official said.
