The University Grants Commission (UGC) of India proposed draft guidelines in December 2023 concerning the de-reservation of teaching positions in higher education institutes (HEIs). These guidelines aim to open reserved vacancies (for SC, ST, and OBC candidates) to the general category under certain conditions, particularly in cases where no suitable reserved category candidates are available. The guidelines suggest a general ban on de-reservation for direct recruitment, except in rare and exceptional cases for Group A posts. For de-reservation, a detailed proposal process was outlined, with different approval requirements for various group posts. The guidelines also include provisions for de-reservation in promotions. These guidelines faced significant backlash and criticism for potentially undermining reservation policies. However, the Ministry of Education clarified that there was no change in the existing reservation policy and reaffirmed its commitment to maintaining reserved positions.
