Maharashtra reserves 90% seats in colleges for SSC students.

The maharashra state has decided to reserve 90 % of seats in junior colleges for SSC students. this is obviously a ploy to win votes in the upcoming assembly elections.

the non ssc boards like CBSE and ICSE had been accused of giving more marks very liberaly to their students to make their admission easy.

with SSC students numbering 16 lakh and non SSC only 20,000 the govt obviously knew which party to support.

the state is also preparing for a legal battle with the nonSSC students who are doubtlessly going to approach the court against this.

the education department is in the process of filing a caveat to ensure the court does not pass a exparte order. a senior lawyer will be engaged to argue the case.

on specific details of the order , the reservation shall be streamwise - in each stream the 90% of the seats will be reserved for state board students.the junior colleges will have to display the no of students they have addmitted in the different streams on the notice boards.

since marathis form a large no of SSC students , predictbly the MNS and SHIV SENA have decided to fight in favour of their decision.

Enter the ghatis . looks like the days of hot females in colleges like saint xavier, elphistone , sydenham , mithibai shashaying around in miniskirts and discussing the latest rock song with their punk boyfriend are over. instead they will be replaced by marathis and middle class gujratis from vernacular schools and also from the 'inferior ' SSC english medium schools.

also muslims have declared their support for the decision since most muslim students are in SSC schools with almost no presence in CBSE and ICSE schools.

Re: Maharashtra reserves 90% seats in colleges for SSC students.

Were the reasons given as to why SSC should be given 90% reservation? Where should the rest of all (CBSC students etc) should go if they dont get admission in any junior colleges?

earlier the ICSE course was very tough and hence the govt used to hold the ICSE marks as 5%more than SSC while giving admission.

but due to protests by SSC students the weightage to ICSE was removed.but this put the ICSE students at a serious disadvantage as their marks were always less than SSC students as their course was very tough.

so ICSE schools in mumbai started giving marks very liberally to their students . extra liberally in fact. same goes for CBSE students . again the SSC students started protesting. this put pressure on the govt for the latest move.

the ICSE and CBSE students will be given admission on the remaining 10% seats .

yes its unfair to them admittedly. some hi fi colleges in mumbai are surrounded by mostly ICSE and CBSE schools whose students normally take admission there and may see a radical change in the profile of students who come to study there. if the order is really implimented then its going to be hard for the non SSC students to get admission.

the govt says that the ICSE and CBSE boards and the people who take admission for their children there are rich and should start their own colleges. but it not that easy to start colleges . besides it will take time start them even if they are started. are they going to come out of thin air ?what are students to do meanwhile?

the govt is blatantly appeasing the SSC lobby in order to gain votes as the SSC students are overwhelmingly more than the nonSSC ones.

its all unfair . but thats politics for you . in the age of MANDAL what do you expect?

its all unfair . but so is life......

why blame marathis alone ? the quota system started with lower castes and OBCs and became a monster with vp signhs notorious MANDAL commission.

already especially in south india large number of seats are reserved for OBCs and BCs .

now the in maharashtra some politicians are trying to do the same.of course , lots of nonmaharashtrians in mumbai also send their childern to SSC schools.especially UP and bihar people . also muslims . also middle class gujratis. they will all reap the benefits.

In every other state in INDIA, CBSE and ICSE are given more weightage. As far as i remember in AP(atleast in my junior college) ICSE was only given extra weightage of 10%, CBSE was given 5%.

P.S: But +2 in State Board is considered tougher than the ones in CBSE and ICSE (in AP)

Re: Maharashtra reserves 90% seats in colleges for SSC students.

Why dont the politicians declare 99.5% reservation. And for the remaining 0.5% seats they should hold a lottery or make the open category students do some circus clown like stupid tricks and make them laugh. Then the one who is the funniest or is able to beg in the most innovative style will get those seats. This can also be shown on TV channels as reality show. Total fun, and vote bank politics!

Time aaya to yeh log woh bhi karenge...

Just see the Women Reservation Bill...Crooks like Lallu/mullu are opposing it. Now they are demanding to increase number of seats in lok sabha (around 700+)

Khud pe aai to yeh solution...warna general class ki gaand mein danda

Re: Maharashtra reserves 90% seats in colleges for SSC students.

Hey wait a minute... I saw the word 'reservation' and I assumed that this is for our usual 'oppressed, unrepresented, underprivileged' class. I am not at fault because its always like this.

But if the state says that we will give preference to the State board for education then what's wrong? Why the fuck do people living in Maharashtra not sign up for SSC? What is so special about ICSE and CBSE? Unless your family is in an employment where you have to move from place to place in India, I dont know what is the attraction for CBSE and ICSE?

And why should you worry about the 'profile and demographic' changing in some upscale colleges? Do you think only the rich and affluent wear hip clothes and sashay their hips in colleges like Mithibai?

Today there is money at all levels of students, enough at least for even middle class folks to be hip. But who cares if students are hip or not.

I see nothing wrong in giving preferences to SSC students over ICSE and CBSE. If their syllabus is tough, why should SSC students be penalised?

generally the ' upper crust ' joins ICSE schools like jamnabai , bombay scottish , arya vidya mandir etc which have much better standard of teaching and much better facilities than SSC schools.

they also hone your personality into perfect gentlemen and ladies.
i used to hang out with the ICSE types in my medical college years and i must admit they have hell of a lot of class than the SSC students.
in fact i wish i had gone to a ICSE school.

maculay's wish for ' indians in blood and colour but englishmen in thought and intellect ' comes really true in these people, though englishmen must be changed to american in todays times.

they are totally westernised and look toward the west for everything . their english is perfect. they are really thoroughbreds.

not surprisingly going to ICSE schools is a prestige point.

Oh ho how wrong you are.. or your impression is so wrong. I grew up in Juhu where many of the rich kids went to Jamnabai and such high fi ICSE schools...

Well I dont want to disspell your impressions because its a topic which is now so old for me.
