Jagran Bureau, New Delhi. Justice G.K., constituted to provide benefits of reservation to the backward castes of Other Backward Classes (OBC).

Which will now be till 31 January 2023. This will be the twelfth extension in the tenure of the commission since its formation.
This commission was constituted by the Center in October 2017 to provide equal benefits of reservation to all the OBC castes. At that time the commission was given 12 weeks to complete this work. However, instead of these 12 weeks, he has got about five years so far, but till now the work has not been completed.

The commission will submit the report within this time frame.

But till now some castes of OBC have got its benefit. A large number of castes are deprived of it. The government is trying to give equal benefits of reservation to all such castes through this sub-categorization. However, due to being a very sensitive matter from the social point of view, the government is taking a lot of steps.
