The politically significant OBC community in Chhattisgarh — which constitutes almost 50 per cent of the state’s population —  has been given a bonanza with their quota of reservation in government jobs and educational institutions being increased from existing 14 per cent to 27 per cent.

With an additional 10 per cent seats will be kept reserved for the students belonging to financially weaker sections, the Congress government of Bhupesh Baghel has decided to implement 82 percent reservation in government jobs and educational institutions. With this decision of the Chhattisgarh cabinet, the state now has the distinction of having implemented the highest reservation quota system in the government sector in India.
