Implement 27% OBC quota in NLUs, put CLAT 2022 on hold: Students' group after NEET verdict
Out of the 23 NLUs, Gujarat National Law University and two more universities have only implemented 27% OBC reservation in All India Quota.
NEW DELHI: After the Supreme Court approved 27% OBC reservation in NEET PG Counselling 2021, the All India OBC Students Association (AIOBCSA) has now demanded OBC quota in law colleges claiming that reservation criteria are not implemented properly. The students' group also asked to put the CLAT 2022 admission on hold till the quota is executed.

In a letter addressed to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, union law minister Kiren Rijiju, Bar Council, and OBC cabinet ministers, the students association asked to implement OBC reservation in All India Quota (AIQ) of National Law Universities (NLUs). “CLAT 2022-23 admission must be stalled until implementing a proper reservation policy,” it said.
The AIOBCSA has also requested the government to direct the NLUs to offer seats in AIQ and “strictly” implement the reservations. “Currently, some NLUs neither provide seats in AIQ nor implement reservations in AIQ. There shall be a uniform process for applying reservation policy in the seats allocated for the all India quota. Some NLUs have not even followed SC and ST reservations in AIQ,” the letter read.
“It is surprising to know that some of the NLUs like NLU Delhi, National Academy of Legal Studies and Research University of Law, Hyderabad, NLU, Bhopal have implemented 10% EWS reservation but not 27% OBC reservation in LLB, LLM courses," the students' group wrote in the letter.
