Teaching quotas to be introduced in IIMs
Ministry of Human Resource Development (HRD) is planning to introduce quotas or reservations in the various teaching positions at Indian Institutes of Management (IIMs). 
 
 As a part of the procedure, a meeting of the chairmen and directors of IIMs will be organized at IIM Shillong on September 20.
 
 The HRD Minister Prakash Javadekar has told media that he is also reviewing the present reservation system in IITs and NITs for which he recently held the meetings of Councils of Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs) and Indian Institutes of Information Technology (IIITs) in Delhi to discuss this issue.
 
 Also, he is planning to conduct such meetings with NITs and other universities. 
 
 Currently, there is no reservation for SCs, STs and OBCs in teaching jobs at IIMs, all set up by the government. All IIMs are registered societies governed by their respective Board of Governors.
