Madhya Pradesh Assembly unanimously passed today an amendment bill raising reservation in government jobs and education for Other Backward Classes (OBC) to 27 per cent from the present 14 per cent. 

The Bill is now going to the Governor and President for assent. After this amendment, reservation in Madhya Pradesh will touch 73 per cent, including 10 per cent quota for the Economically Weaker Section from the general category.

Reservation for Scheduled Caste-SC is 16 per cent and for Scheduled Tribes-ST stands at 20 per cent.

Earlier in March this year, ahead of Lok Sabha polls, the Madhya Pradesh government had brought an ordinance raising OBC quota to 27 per cent. It was, however, stayed by the Madhya Pradesh High Court.

During the discussion, some MLAs also demanded that quota be introduced in the private sector. Leader of Opposition Gopal Bhargava demanded that creamy layer be introduced within the OBC quota so that its benefit could reach those who never took benefit of such reservation.

Mr. Bhargava said a provision of at least 7 per cent quota for Ati-Pichhda-extremely backward under the OBC category should be introduced. He said the extremely backward quota in other states will be analyzed.
