Reservation for Delhi students in State Govt. funded DU Colleges

Parents and students of Delhi are unknowingly facing an unjust system at Delhi University. Twelve colleges of the Delhi University are fully funded by Government of N.C.T. of Delhi, i.e. from Delhi taxpayers' money, yet there is not a single seat reserved for students from the National Capital Territory. All over India, it is a common practice for State Government funded colleges/institutes to reserve seats for their native students, which is both rationally and morally sound. Yet these colleges limitlessly accept students from easier state boards, leaving the Delhi students (mostly enrolled with CBSE) with little options.
Interestingly, all the tech schools funded by the state govt. like DTU, IGDTUW and IIITD justly have 85% reservation for Delhi region candidates.

Even NSIT (Netaji Subhash Institute of Technology), which is a part of Delhi University and receives full funding from the Delhi Government​, has 85% seats reserved for state kids. Its a peculiar matter with these 12 Commerce, Arts and Sciences colleges which despite being 100% funded by the Delhi Government don't serve their people. We seek a similar quota for students residing in Delhi for colleges in Delhi University funded by the Delhi Government.

These students who do have access to colleges, are forced to opt for much expensive private colleges and pay the exorbitantly high fee for their education. We cannot aim to empower the youth by lading them with such immense financial burden.

We, Aditya Makkar and Akul Jindal on behalf of all Delhi students, humbly request the HRD Minister, Shri Prakash Javadekar and the Delhi Government​'s Education Minister, Shri Manish Sisodia, to consider our plea and to allow for a regional quota to students of Delhi in Delhi University.
