In A Repeat Of 2008, Rajasthan Govt Passes Reservation Bills For Gujjars And EBC

Updated on 19 October, 2019 at 4:21 pm By

Repeating their move from back in 2008, the Rajasthan Assembly on Tuesday passed the reservation bills providing quota for Gujjars and Economically Backward Classes (EBC) in two separate bills.

While back in 2008, the Vasundhara Raje-led previous BJP government had passed a common bill providing 5 percent reservation to SBC and 14 percent to EBC, the bill was later stayed by the high court. Thus, this time the government decided to bring in separate bills for both the categories.

The first reservation bill provides 5 % reservation to Gujjars and other communities which fall under Special Backward Classes (SBC). The second bill has devoted 14 % quota for the Economically Backward Classes (EBC) of unreserved categories.

What is more, the House also passed resolutions requesting the state government to make efforts to get both the bills – 1) the Rajasthan Special Backward Classes Bill 2015 which will provide reservation of seats in educational institutes in the state and also reserve seats of appointments and posts in services under the state, and 2) the Rajasthan Economically Backward Classes Bill 2015,  which provides reservation of seats in educational institutes in the state and during appointments and posts in services under the state – are included in the Ninth Schedule of the Constitution.

Passing of both these bills will mean that the reservation in the state will exceed the permissible legal limits as the reservation under SC, ST and OBC categories will remain unchanged.

Five communities that have been included in the SBC are – Banjara/Baldiya/Labana, Gadiya Lohar/Gadoliya, Gujar/Gurjar, Raika/Rebari/Debasi and Gadariya/Gadri/Gayari, They will be able to get 5 % quota under SBC.

He then went on to add that the bills were necessary for the “upliftment and advancement” of these backward communities and financially weaker sections in the unreserved categories and thus the state government had decided to provide them 5 % quota under SBC.
