3 While the Commission was examining the = representations from various communities for incluSion in thelist of Backward Classes, there has been considerable unrest among the members of various castes and communities in -support of their long pending demand and-the Government initially extended certainnon-statutory educational benefits to -students of certain stow whoie- p4rents ,6,14011rdiaPs income s • R,4 12; 090 /- or less per annum SiMilarly, certa•necononiiC support schemes-have also been extended to persons whose income is less than 6,900 /-pa in the orders read above These benefits were subsequently extended to MUsliins ilohg with other


4 However, the meta extension of economic benefits is felt inadequate_and will not entitle those castes for reservation of seats in ,educational institutions and for the reservation of jobs in Government and Local bodies, which indeed is their main demand In fact, certain castes who are similarly situated are already included in a list-of Backward classes in certain regions of this state and other neighboring states In these circumstances, the Government made a request to the Commission for interim report in regard to the social and educational backwardness of these castes and communities, But the Commission expressed its inability to do so

5 Normally, before any caste or community is included or excluded from the list of Backward classes, the Government is expected to seek a report from the Commission and then take appropriate action It is not the policy of the Government under normal circumstances to deviatefrom this procedure But so far as the demand of the caste and communities under reference for the inclusion in the list of Backward classes is concerned, it is a Long pending demand with a mass support sometimes even causing unrest, for the simple reason that certain communities which aremore or less on par with them in the matter of social and educational backwardness have already been included in the list of Backward classes Thus; a feeling of inequity his been generated in those communities giving rise to emotional upsurges for social justice

6  In the above backdrop of events and demands, and pending receipt of the report of the Commission, the Government here by ordered that castes / communities Specified in the Annexure to this order shall be treated as socially and educationally backward classes of citizens for the purpose Of reservation Of seat in educational institutions and for the recruitment to job in Government, Local bodies etc,

7 Any reservation to the communities,here by ordered to be included,in the list of Backward Classes will not tut into the quantum of reservation available to those who are already recognized as backward classes

(i) The percentage of reservation to be earmarked to the caste and communities included by this order in the list of Backward classes
