A special committee headed by Industry Minister Narayan Rane to study the question of Maratha reservation in educational and jobs sectors, submitted its report to the chief minister Prithviraj Chavan late on Wednesday night.
The report has recommended reservation for the Maratha community, without infringing on the reservation in the above sectors for the Other Backward Classes (OBC) and other communities.
Due to strong demand for reservation for the community, the state government had formed the committee, headed by Rane, who himself is from the community. The committee had traveled across the state, and had met activists and sociologists to understand the need of reservation.
