The Chhattisgarh Assembly passes two amendments to the state’s quota onreservations, bringing it to 76%

The Chhattisgarh Assembly unanimously approved two amendment bills that would have
increased the state’s overall quota to 76% by allowing for quotas in government employment
and admission to educational institutions based on the population of various categories. The
Chhattisgarh Public Service (Scheduled Caste, Scheduled Tribes and Other Backward
Classes Reservation) Amendment Bill and the Chhattisgarh Educational Institutions
(Reservation in Admission) Amendment Bill, both introduced by Chief Minister Bhupesh
Baghel on Friday, were approved after more than five hours of discussion.
According to the bills, Scheduled Tribes will receive a quota of 32%, Other Backward
Classes will receive a quota of 27%, Scheduled Caste will receive a quota of 13%, and the
Economically Weaker Section (EWS) will receive a quota of 4% for public employment and
admissions to educational institutions.
The Quantifiable Data Commission report, according to the leader of the opposition, Narayan
Chandel, and other opposition MLAs, was not presented to the Assembly. They said, “If the
government asserts that reservations have been made based on population percentage, then
there is no precise data in this regard.” In addition, the Chhattisgarh High Court annulled the
2012 order by the Raman Singh-led state government to increase the quota for government
employment and admittance to educational institutions to 58% in September of this year.
Over 50% of reservations, according to the HC, are unconstitutional.
