Bihar reserves 33% seats for girls in engineering, medical colleges
PATNA: Chief minister (CM) Nitish Kumar on Wednesday asked the offi als of the science and technology and the health and medical education departments to take necessary steps to reserve minimum 33.3% seats for girls in all engineering and medical colleges.
“The 33.3% quota for girls would be introduced in all engineering and medical colleges across the state from the coming academic session (2021-22). With this, Bihar will become the first state in the country to provide 33.3% quota to girls in the technical colleges,” a secretary-rank officer, who did not want to be identified, told TOI on Wednesday.
Chairing a high-level meeting through videoconferencing from his residence, Nitish said, “The reservation of minimum 33.3% seats for girls will lead to further increase in the number of women in all technical institutions. Women will be more motivated to pursue technical and higher education.”
The CM said engineering colleges were being opened in all 38 districts of the state. Several medical colleges too have been opened in the state in recent years, he said.
“Our main aim is to ensure that the boys and girls of Bihar do not go to other states to pursue engineering and medical courses,” Nitish said.
IF the country has to progress, UP and Bihar should transform asap.. That will expedite all round growth...Step in the direction..
Population control needs to be implemented immediately
NTR did this in Andhra way back in the 80s.
There should be no reservation in my point of view it should be only on the basis of merit . Why should general category boys always suffer ?
If seats are not filled up then they are not given to anyone deserving, it goes to waste.
good step. maybe in the next 100-200 years we'll see some change in the most backward state of India.
An educated woman educates the whole family. Excellent step to transform the society.
Reservation so far has not improved conditions in any way. Cor ion and inefficiency not gone.
Po iticians are good at complicating things.
First, they have to improve the quality of education there, Bihar has poor quality of education. Engineers graduate there to become chaiw.
Peons drivers and security guards
Construction workers mainly and large families of 7/ 8 children. Now covid will clean up the mess.
Yes, hilarious scheme.
EXCELLENT DECISION BY NITISH KUMAR.
Bihar women ved NDA to power in recently held ions and are getting dividends in the form piped water to houses and reservation in medical and engineering colleges.
I am not sure who is left without reservation.
Reservation in whatever form harms the society in long run.
Need to reserve some more seats for scheduled castes and tribes along with girls reservation..
Yes, all seats should be reserved for SCs/STs.
better to open women only engineering and medical colleges
What a jurk CM.
