The Most Backward Class Reservation Protection Committee (MBCRPC) here today urged the Puducherry Administration to take immediate steps to implement 67 per cent reservation in the Union Territory.
In a statement here, Mr G Sugumaran, Committee member and Secretary of the Federation for People’s Rights, pointed out the Supreme Court direction that state governments could provide more than 50 per cent reservation after hearing the views of the Backward Class Commission.
He said the administration should enact a legislation to provide 20 per cent reservation for BC, 30 per cent for MBC, 16 per cent for SC and one per cent for ST (total 67) and implement it after taking the President’s nod.
Thanking the government for announcing two per cent reservation for the Muslims from the Backward Class quota and two per cent for fishermen from the MBC quota, Mr Sugumaran urged the government to issue government order forthwith so that it could be implemented from the current academic year itself.
