The Haryana government has detailed its formula for reservation for Jaats in a Bill which was passed in the Vidhan Sabha:
- The ‘Haryana Backward Classes (Reservation in Government Jobs and admissions in Government Jobs and Admissions in Educational Institutions) Bill, 2016’, provides for reservation in government jobs under Government/Government Undertakings and Local Bodies as well as admission in Government/Government Aided Educational/Technical/Professional Institutions to persons belonging to Backward Classes in the state.
- The objective of the Bill, in keeping with the demands made by the Jaat leaders, is to give statutory status to Backward Class ‘C’ (earlier referred to as Special Backward Classes) as specified in Schedule III of the Bill. The Bill further requests the Central government to include the Act in the 9th Schedule read with Article 31B of the Constitution of India. Inclusion in the 9th Schedule is intended to protect the Bill from judicial review on grounds of it not violating any fundamental rights as defined in the Constitution.
- Despite the fact that a consensus on the standard procedure and timeline necessary to enact the Reservation Bill was reached between the Jaat leaders and ML Khattar, chief minister, Haryana in meetings held on 17 January, a series of malicious whisper campaigns designed to create unrest, set off a violent quota stir within hours, on 18 January.
- The quota agitation held the state to ransom for almost a month, leading to 30 lives lost, 320 injured, including 72 policemen, damages to public and private property valued at Rs 1,100 crore, including Rs 200 crore worth of damage to railway assets and an overall loss upwards of Rs 34,000 crore across the northern states on account of disruption of economic activity.
- According to the Bill, 16 percent for Class III and IV posts, 11 percent in Class I and II posts in direct recruitment in Government/Government Undertakings and Local Bodies and 16 percent reservation for admissions in Government/Government Aided Educational, Technical and Professional Institutions will be provided for those in Backward Class (BC) ‘A’. This represents a one percent increase in Class I and II.
- BC ‘A’ is an exhaustive list of 71 castes.
- Eleven percent in Class III and IV posts, six percent in Class I and II posts in direct recruitment in Government/Government Undertakings and Local Bodies, and 11 percent reservation for admissions in Government/Government Aided Educational, Technical and Professional Institutions has been provided for under BC ‘B’. This also represents a one percent increase in Class I and II.
- BC ‘B’ includes six main caste groups, including Ahir/Yadav, Gujjar, Lodh/Lodha/Lodhi, Saini/Shakya/Koeri/Kushwaha/Maurya, Meo and Gosai/Gosain/Goswami.
- For Class III and IV posts 10 percent, for Class I and II posts six percent in direct recruitment in Government/Government Undertakings and Local Bodies and 10 percent reservation for admissions in Government/Government Aided Educational, Technical and Professional Institutions has been provided under BC ‘C’.
- The BC ‘C’ list includes Jaat, Jaat Sikh, Ror, Bishnoi, Tyagi and Mulla Jaat/Muslim Jaat.
- The Bill clarifies that there will be no reservation for persons belonging to the creamy layer of backward classes as specified in Schedule I, II or III and the criteria for identification of people in the creamy layer of backward classes for the purpose of availing benefits of reservation under this Bill will be specified by the government and reviewed every three years.
- If seats reserved for backward classes in educational institutions are not filled up in any academic year due to non-availability of candidates possessing the requisite qualifications, these will be made available to other general candidates with no carry forward of vacant backward class seats to the next academic year.
- The government has been absent in since the Jaat protest began.
- Jaat quota stir: Congress demands govt’s dismissal, fresh poll in Haryana.
- “They (BJP) are responsible for making the most forward and developed state the most backward,” Ghulam Nabi Azad said.
- Jaat reservation row: Curfew lifted in Hisar, Jind cities.
- The Haryana government’s assurance of granting reservation to Jaats by bringing a Jaat Reservation Bill in the ensuing Vidhan Sabha session is likely to witness firm opposition from within the party.
- Rajasthan: Jaat protesters vandalise railway station, burn train engine.
- Police fired in the air and lobbed tear gas shells to disperse mobs at two places.
- Jaat agitation: Gurgaon returns to normal after leaders agree to call off stir.
- The Jaat leaders, who unanimously decided to call off all the protests in the city, will be holding an all-community meeting Tuesday to discuss the future course of action, said a member of the Jaat Aarakshan Sangharsh Samiti.
- In fact: Jaats think they’re backward; there’s a reason
- Agriculture doesn’t pay that much, land is no longer the source of power it once was, and the community has failed to keep up.
