Maratha Reservation

The Backward Classes Commission has studied the data of around 45,000 families among other data provided by various educational, social and legal organisations

In what could be termed as a relief after a long wait for the Maratha community, the Backward Classes Commission (BCC) yesterday submitted its progress report on the socio-economic status of the community to the Bombay High Court, even though the final report is yet to be submitted to the state.    

This comes as the Bombay High Court bench, headed by Justice R.M Savant, was hearing a Public Interest Litigation (PIL) filed by the Maratha Kranti Morcha, which had demanded reservation to the community in job and education sectors.

The Maratha Kranti Morcha is one of the organisations that is leading the Maratha agitation on their various issues.  The BCC, headed by Judge (Retired) S B Mhase, was formed by the Maharashtra government to study, analyse and give its findings on whether the Maratha community should be given any reservation.

During the hearing, senior counsel, Ravi Kadam, appearing for the state, informed the High Court that the commission has studied the data of around 45,000 families and other data provided by the various educational, social, legal organisations.

“The commission is still in the process of reviewing its findings and it is likely to submit its findings, suggestions and recommendation through a final report to the state by November 15,” Kadam informed the court.

It will be recalled that on August 10, the Pune police arrested a total of 194 people for rioting and arson during the Maratha quota agitation in the city. As many as 192 accused were produced in the court on the same day, 170 of whom were granted bail on August 14.
