Jawaharlal Nehru University of Delhi University and Banaras Hindu Universtity and Allahabad University, all of them directly under the HRD ministry, do not have a single SC/ST professor despite the policy of reservation in promotions. over, DU and JNU don’t have a single SC/ST associate professor (reader). BHU has three SC associate professors, not one from the ST category and 112 SC and 30 ST assistant professors (lecturers), the entry level post. 

In JNU, there are 25 SC and 10 ST assistant professors. However, it does not have a single SC/ST research scientist. Allahabad University has just one SC associate professor, STs again drawing a blank. At the lecturer level, Allahabad University has 15 SC and two STs. 

An RTI query to University Grants Commission, JNU and BHU by Banaras-based Mahendra Pratap Singh revealed a similar situation in 31 central universities across India.
