The Centre on Thursday approved a proposal to constitute a committee to recommend process for conferring ownership or transfer rights to residents of unauthorized colonies in Delhi.  

The decision was taken ahead of the Lok Sabha elections at a Cabinet meeting chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi. The government said in a statement that "Cabinet approves proposal to constitute a committee to recommend process for conferring ownership or transfer rights to residents of unauthorized colonies in Delhi." 

There are more than 1,650 unauthorised colonies in Delhi where migrant population plays an important role in deciding the fate of any political party during elections. 

In today’s cabinet meeting various other important decisions were taken like Human Resource Development (HRD) Ministry’s proposal to introduce an ordinance that will restore the 200-point roster for faculty reservation in universities was approved. 

The Central Educational Institutions Ordinance 2019 ensures that a university will be considered as a unit when appointing faculty and that the quota for Scheduled Castes, Scheduled Tribes and the Other Backward Classes remains intact. 

It will allow the filling up of 5,000 vacancies in the teachers’ cadre by direct recruitment and improve teaching standards in higher educational institutions. 

Now all universities will be considered as one unit, as opposed to the 13-point reservation system. 

It will ensure that “the Constitutional Provisions of Article 14, 16 and 21 shall be complied with and stipulated reservation criteria for the Scheduled Castes, Scheduled Tribes, and Socially and Educationally Backward Classes are also met. 

Adding to it, the decision is expected to improve the teaching standards in the higher educational institutions to attract all eligible candidates.
