Backward class panel to take call on adding Jats to OBC list
Thursday December 19, 2013 10:49 PM, IANS

The government Thursday asked the National Commission for Backward Classes (NCBC) to take a decision on the inclusion of the Jat community in the central list of Other Backward Classes (OBC).

The decision was taken after the union cabinet considered a proposal of the social justice and empowerment ministry.

The cabinet held that the NCBC should reconsider its earlier decision of not conducting a survey of Jats in the country, an official release said here.

The NCBC was asked to take a decision on including Jats in the central list of OBCs by which the community members can avail benefits of reservation in central government jobs and education institutions as per existing norms.

Jats have been demanding for many decades that they be included in the list.

Community members had even blocked highways and railway tracks in the past to press for their demand.
