Dasara gift: Telangana govt issued GO enhancing ST quota from 6 to 10%

Hyderabad, October 1: As promised by Chief Minister K. Chandrashekar Rao (KCR), the Telangana government issued GO No. 33 increasing reservation to Scheduled Tribes (STs) from 6 to 10% in educational institutions and employment. The KCR government has decided to enhance quota as ST population is considerably high in the state. Even the decision to increase reservation to STs is based on recommendation of the Chellappa committee, the government said.
 
Telangana Legislative Assembly passed a Bill hiking quota for STs six years ago but the Modi government at Centre did not take any decision since then despite the Supreme Court’s verdict of allowing reservation more than 50%. Besides, the TRS government declared 3,146 hamlets as gram panchayats.
 
Other initiatives taken by the state government are upliftment of STs in Telangana by setting up 92 Gurukul schools, official recognition to Medaram Jatara and establishing Komaram Bheem Adivasi Bhavan and Sevalal Banjara Bhavan in Hyderabad.
