Scrap clause of `three year compulsory schooling`:CPI
Puducherry: The opposition CPI has asked the territorial administration to scrap the Centralised Admission Committee (CENTAC) clause insisting that students seeking admission to professional colleges in the Union Territory under government quota should have done school education consecutively for three years in Puducherry.
"This condition is an inbuilt stipulation in the vexed regional reservation policy the government has introduced to finalise list of students for medical and other professional courses under government quota during the 2010-2011 academic
year," Puducherry unit Secretary N Kalainathan said.
He said in a release that the insistence of three year compulsory school education preceding the current academic year for students to become eligible for selection under government quota for professional courses here was `unfair, agonising and unwholesome`. He sought immediate scrapping of this clause.
Kalainathan said that already the introduction of regional reservation earmarking quota for Puducherry region (75 percent), Karaikal (18 percent) Mahe (three) and Yanam (four) itself was flayed by parents and others.
A number of students were upset by the clause of three year compulsory school education proceeding the current academic year in Puducherry when they were denied seats under government quota in professional colleges at the CENTAC
counselling which began on Saturday last.
