Rajasthan approves 5% quota for SBCs
The Jat community that comes under the OBC quota had protested against the inclusion of SBCs within the existing OBC reservation, apprehending that they would be sidelined. The inclusion of 5 per cent for SBC quota within the 21 per cent OBC reservation would have reduced the Jat quota to 16 per cent.
The dominant Jat community has a strong influence in the state and the Congress government does not want to offend them especially ahead of the Assembly election scheduled to be held next year.
