Delhi University’s Maths Department is conducting interviews for PhD admissions and the minimum score in the entrance examination needed for applicants belonging to the SC and ST categories is zero! The department’s eligibility criteria – zero – for SC-ST applicants has invited criticism on social media and has once again begun the debate whether reservation is still relevant. “Those who have scored zero will do PhD and teach you! Seriously? A Zero?” asked a Facebook user Amit Raj. “Manufacturing fools?” reads another comment. According to the schedule uploaded on the varsity website, 223 applicants have been invited for interviews between July 31 and August 4. For the general category, 94 marks out of 200 (including Interview) is the minimum criteria. For OBC applicants, it is 84 per cent marks and zero for those belonging to the SC-ST categories.

The head of the Maths Department said there were “no minimum marks for SC, ST students”. “We have to call everyone for the interview. Final selection will be based on the performance in the interview,” the official said, adding that mistakes, if any, in the eligibility criteria will be corrected.

Whether the applicants are fools or the entire PHDdepartment of delhi univisrity are fools or they wants to manufacture fools students with zero knowlege in Maths. If they became professors or HOD what they will teach the students other than zero. ZeroX Zero No numerical . Fist ban this dehli uiveirsty maths departments. This is the real fact of Kanitha Mathai (Ramanujams, birth country?

      God Bless this country...However being an optimist, I can say that a day will come when there will be no takers for this reservation system and it would be scrapped. Nafrat jo sikhaye woh dharam tera nahin hai...

        इसकी भी क्या जरूरत है, नाहक परेशान करना है, सीधे आयु के अनुसार मनवांछित डिग्री दे दी जानी चाहिए

            This article seems to be deliberate and wants to start the debate of reservation without understanding the fundamentals of the reservation system. However it is not going to serve the ulterior motive of this article since people are understanding these systematic plots.

                  Indian Education System is becoming a matter of tomfoolery. General category students can't even breathe in such a scenario. Reservation should be terminated!

                    Why university has called them interview ? There are many ugc net and candidates and DU faculty members . Is this because they want to make fun of the category student? Will these candidates get selected based on interview?? Is interview the only criteria for selection. Please go through the notification and result called for interview. Why Dept. Is doing this God only can answer???

                        This is due to the social imbalance, which is nothing but a byproduct of casteism, which was eventually introduced and used for 5000 plus years..! Now people are after the education system and they hate education system, and what about the people and their generations who hated casteism for years and nothing was done to fix that, they suffered in depression, Now when there is something in place to help bring equality in the society, due to half knowledge people want to oppose it, please check the reality first to understand what really happened.

                          None of that justifies "qualifying" someone who got ZERO marks. You heard me right? ZE- ING-RO! What do you think? A person who got zero marks in an entrance examination of 200 marks is qualified to attend the PhD interview? On what basis are you making that ludicrous claim? If it is 94 marks for General Category, then it should be 94 marks for all categories. THAT'S IT!
