Overseas Citizens of India barred from JEE 19.8.2015 deccanherald.com
Students with Overseas Citizens of India (OCI) status have been barred from taking entrance tests conducted for admissions to centrally funded technical institutes in India (IITs and NITs) notwithstanding equal educational opportunities guaranteed to them as a right under the Citizenship Act. As a result, OCIs living in India with their family are facing a tough time to plan the future of their children. The Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs), National Institutes of Technology (NITs) and other higher educational institutions do open doors for the OCIs under a scheme for direct admission of students coming from abroad but the number of seats under this quota is very limited. Moreover, the admission and tuition fee for OCIs charged under the direct admission scheme is too high compared to that for Indian students. According to Home Ministry's guidelines under the Citizenship Act, the OCIs must be treated on a par with the Non-Resident Indians (NRI) in "financial, economic and educational fields, except ...

Margins to mainstream 1.8.2015 Deccan Herald - Supplements
Afriend posted an update about a milkman's daughter getting 93 per cent marks in Class 12 board exams and someone responded by saying, "What does the parents' profession have to do with their children's marks?" A great deal, really. The country was still not done lauding the amazing feat of the brothers, Raju (18) and Brajesh (19), sons of a daily wage worker, who made it to the prestigious IITs with ranks 167 and 410 respectively, when the details of how they were continually harassed for going to school and college, and dreaming of more, began appearing in the media. Belonging to a lower class, the boys faced blatant discrimination, not unknown in this country, but prevailed. Such stories of those who defy the odds of social alienation and economic deprivation are few and far between. Thousands of first-generation learners, that is, those whose parents have received little or no formal education, still sieve through the harsh social realities and retreat to the margins. For generations we have seen ...
