‘D’ Tales – Mar 2021

We have sought and collected caste-category-wise and gender-wise number of students enrolled for masters degree at the University of Madras in the academic year 2019-20, through the RTI act (access here). Despite being a state university, University of Madras has given us the number of students admitted under the OBC category. However, Govt. of TN has no such category as OBC. The data graphics are presented below. 

Norm vs. Actual

We acknowledge that OC being the Open Category likely to have ST, SC.
