Rajasthan: Among OBCs, Jats claim 40% top govt jobs

Jaipur: The quota trouble in Rajasthan has its genesis in state government’s decision to include Jat community in the OBC in 1999.

Over the years, the Jat community cornered the biggest chunk of quota benefits in OBC category if their representation in state government is any indication. 
 
According to quantifiable data provided by government departments to Other Backward Classes (OBC) commission, between 2007 and 2012, Jats cornered 30 to 50% of posts including posts reserved for OBC and the OBC who were selected against general category. However, their share in the population as per 1931 census is just 9 per cent.
 
Whether it is RAS and RPS, gazetted officers or subordinate services, Jats dominate over 81 other communities in the OBC quota. Out of 60 OBC candidates selected for RAS 20 were Jats, which amounts to 30% of the quota pie while in the RPS, the Jat candidates bagged 10 posts out of 21 bagging a lion’s share of 50%. According to the data, 100 posts out of 281 in various administrative services have gone to the Jats, but five SBC communities together share just 9 posts between them.
 
Similarly, among the gazette officers, 884 posts out of total 1,445 successful OBC candidates went to candidates from the Jat community. Within this, 670 doctors out of 1,559 and 71 assistant professors in college education out of 163 were Jats, the SBC candidates ended up with just 73 posts.
 
In subordinate services, 552 posts went to OBC candidates. Of them 279 were Jats while only 20 are from SBC communities. Interestingly, many communities didn’t get a single job in this period.
 
According to data between 2001 and 2012, Jats received more than 9% jobs out of total appointments by the government while they got nearly 30% share within the OBC appointments.
 
Even in colleges and universities, out of 20,765 OBC and SBC (Special Backward Classes) students at present, 7,833 are Jats while number of Gurjar students is just around 1,000.
 
Not surprisingly, just like Bheel Meenas have been demanding a split in the ST reservation, several castes in the OBC are raising a similar demand or want a separate quota for them.
