For Females (Kaur)
Apart from SGTB, every college has 50% reserved seats for students. The minority certificate allows 5% more advantage to the students. The committee has decided a parameter for girls that:
- Their hair should not be ‘cut’. Trimmed eyebrows are not an issue.
- The committee has also decided the dress code. If the girl comes in shirt or shorts for getting a certificate, she won’t be allowed with it. For getting a certificate, the suit, its scarf and long hair is must.
- The girl should have a ‘Kaur’ in her name and must have the knowledge of Sikh history. During the certifying process, any question regarding the Sikh culture or history can be asked and the certificate will only be allowed after proper intervention.
For Males (Singh)
- In comparison to girls, the boys have less parameter but are strict. It’s essential for every boy to wear a turban or else they won’t get an entry in the college. If they are coming for collecting their certificate, turban is compulsory at that time as well.
- No trimmed beard will be tolerated and they must have a ‘Singh’ in their name just like girls to have a ‘kaur’.
- The committee said that if the students or their family will not follow these guidelines, the certificate will be not be issued.
- Apart from this, boys should have the proper knowledge of Sikh religion, any question regarding the same can be asked during the certifying process.
