Jat, 4 other castes may get OBC status in Haryana

In a development that may draw curtains on the Jat community’s agitation demanding quota in government jobs, decks have been cleared for according Other Backward Classes (OBC) status to five castes — Jats, Jat Sikhs, Rors, Tyagis and Bishnois — in Haryana.
 A survey report mandated by the Haryana State Backward Classes Commission (HSBCC) has recommended reservation in jobs and education for the five castes on the basis of their socio-economic and educational backwardness. The final call will be taken by the state government once the HSBCC submits its formal report, a senior Hooda government official said here. Sources said the report, which was prepared by Dr KS Sangwan, a former head of sociology department, Maharishi Dayanand University, Rohtak, was submitted to the commission recently.
