Supreme Court rejects reservation to Jats under OBC quota


Supreme Court (SC) has rejected the notification issued by Union Government to include Jats in the Central list of Other Backward Classes (OBC) for the benefit of reservation. A bench of Justice Tarun Gogoi and Justice R.F. Nariman found fault with the Centre’s decision to overlook the findings of the National Commission for Backward Classes (NCBC) stating that Jats do not deserve to be included in the Central list of OBC as they don’t form socio-economic backward class. The Narendra Modi government had supported UPA regime's decision to include the Jat community in the central OBC list for providing reservation.
