Panel submits report to Gehlot on Gurjjar quota

A report on the reservation for OBC communities is learnt to have recommended 5 per cent quota for Gurjjars within the 21 per cent OBC quota. Rajasthan OBC Commission chairman Justice I S Israni submitted the report to Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot on Thursday night. The Chief Minister, however, on Friday denied that any such recommendation was made and maintained that "the report is being studied".

"The reservation for Gurjjars will not be included in the 21 per cent quota for OBC. There is no such recommendation and we are still studying the report. Once it is approved by the department concerned, we will present it before the Cabinet for its final nod," Gehlot said.

The report examines whether Gurjjars and four other communities should be treated as Special Backward Classes and granted 5 per cent quota in government jobs and educational institutes. The Gurjjar community has repeatedly protested against the delay in presenting the report and has also been threatening to go on yet another agitation.
