The Rajasthan High Court on 29 January 2013 stayed the state government's decision for giving 4 per cent additional reservation to Gurjar,Raika-Rebari,Gadia Luhar and Banjara communities. The division bench of the Rajasthan High Court presided by Justice N.K. Jain stayed this order. Final hearing of this case will be on 19 February 2013. Earlier on 28 November 2012, the Rajasthan Government announced to provide 4% more reservation in government jobs to Gurjar and 4 other communities under Special Backward Category.
This decision was taken on the basis of the report of Rajasthan OBC Commission. This commission studied and examined quantifiable data with regard to Gurjar and other communities representation in the state services and made its opinion accordingly. This decision was challenged by a petitioner Manoj Solanki that it will provide 54 per cent reservation which is violation of Supreme Court’s order.
