RAIPUR: The Congress government in Chhattisgarh plans to enact a legislation to provide reservation in jobs and educational institutions in “proportion of the population” of STs/SCs and other categories during the two-day special session of the assembly beginning December 1.
The special session has been called to resolve the impasse arising out of the recent high court decision that set aside a 2012 government order taking overall quota to 58%, ruling that reservation above 50% is unconstitutional. If the government goes through with its proportional-quota plan, it could take reservation in Chhattisgarh to 81% — possibly the highest in the country.
There are indications that the Bhupesh Baghel government is mulling 32% quota for STs, 12% for SCs and 27% reservation for OBCs. Along with 10% quota for economically weaker sections (EWS), it would take reservation to 81%.
The 2012 order gave 32% reservation for tribals, 12% for Scheduled Castes and 14% for other backward classes (OBCs). After the HC decision, the quota for tribals stands at 20%, SC quota has gone up to 16% and OBC reservation remains the same as it was in undivided Madhya Pradesh.
CM Baghel has repeatedly asserted that his government is determined to ensure reservation on the basis of proportion of various categories in the total population.
Besides introducing the bill, the Congress government might also bring about a resolution, urging the Centre to enlist Chhattisgarh’s reservation in the Ninth Schedule of the Constitution, which contains central and state laws that cannot be challenged in court.
When it comes to restoring reservation of Scheduled Tribes to 32%, the ruling Congress, opposition BJP and other political parties are on the same page.
The Congress government is in the process of finalising the draft of the amendment bills that could come up for consideration at the meeting of the cabinet on November 24, Congress circles said.
The move comes at a time when tribal communities are up in arms demanding restoration of their reservation to 32% after their quota declined to 20% following the HC order of September 19, 2022. Facing severe tribal resentment a year ahead of elections, the state government moved an appeal in Supreme Court and is considering its options to resolve the issue.
