Chhattisgarh reservation quota to exceed 80% after state considers population ratio plan
If the government follows through on its proportional quota plan, reservations in Chhattisgarh could reach 81%, probably the most in the country.
In addition to introducing the Bill, the Congress government may propose a resolution urging the Center to include the Chhattisgarh Reserve in the Ninth Schedule of the Constitution, which includes central and state regulations that cannot be challenged in court.
The Congress government is finalizing the draft amendment bills which could be examined during the Council of Ministers on 24 November.
This comes at a time when tribal people are agitating for the restoration of their reservation to 32% after their quota was reduced to 20% following the HC order of September 19, 2022.
