Haryana Assembly on Tuesday unanimously passed Jat Reservation Bill formerly known as Haryana Backward Classes (Reservation in Services and Admission in Educational Institutions) Bill, 2016. The bill would provide reservation for Jats and four other communities in government jobs and education.
The bill was moved by Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar to give statutory status to Backward classes Block ‘A’, Backward classes Block ‘B’ and Backward classes Block ‘C.
The CM Manohar Lal Khattar requested the Central government to include this Act in 9th Schedule read with Article 31B of the Constitution of India.
Haryana Cabinet had on Monday passed a Bill to provide reservation to the community in government jobs and education, paving the way for tabling of the proposed legislation in the Assembly before March 31.
The draft Bill on reservation to Jats and four other castes—Jat Sikhs, Rors, Bishnois and Tyagis—was cleared at a Cabinet meeting under the chairmanship of Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar here, official sources said.
