The state government will provide a detailed 2700-page document in support of the Maratha reservation for scrutiny to the Maharashtra State Backward Class Commission (MSBCC).

This decision comes after the Bombay High Court on May 4 told the Maharashtra government that it was free to decide on referring the case of Maratha reservations to the MSBCC.

Notably, the OBC Jankranti Parishad opposed the decision. In this regard, OBC Jankranti Parishad President Anil Mahajan said, “Both the centre and state appear to have made their mind to accord reservation to the Marathas. Now, there are two categories. One is kunbhis who qualify under OBCs. But there are large sections of Marathas who using the tag maratha-kunbhis are trying to push themselves in the reservation quota of the OBC. We will not allow this to happen.”

However, Maratha Kranti Morcha denied the charge saying, “We are not trying to make inroads in the OBC quota. The Maratha community is seeking reservation on merit on economically weaken grounds in government jobs and education.” The state government finally decided to refer the Maratha reservation issue to the MSBCC.
