Originally the professions of Kayastha (scribe) and Vaidya (physician) were not restricted and could be followed by people of different varnas including the brahmanas.

So there is every probability that a number of brahmana families were mixed up with members of other varnas in forming the present Kayastha and Vaidya communities of Bengal.

The minority status exempts the institutions from implementing all quotas—even those for scheduled castes and scheduled tribes—and gives the institutions, and the trusts that often run them, the freedom to formulate their own admission policy and related rules.But no rules governing this percentage actually exist.Until the extension of quotas to OBCs, many of these institutions voluntarily practised a combination of general admissions, SC/ST quotas and favoured admissions for their own communities—such as the Delhi colleges run by the Sikhs.“Our colleges observe every Delhi University norm whether it is with respect to teachers’ appointments or admissions.However, they do give preference to Sikh students by way of relaxation in marks at the time of admission,” said Harvinder Singh, general secretary of the Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee.“We, as institutions, should have the power in our hands to decide on our admission policy so that we can admit more students from our own community.
