Reservation For Minorities

At present, there is no reservation in Civil Posts and Services under the Government of India and admission to Central Educational Institutions for Minority Communities declared by the Central Government under Section 2(c) of National Commission for Minorities Act, 1992.

However, Central Government carved out a sub quota of 4.5% for minorities, as defined under Section 2(c) of National Commission for Minorities Act, 1992 [viz. Muslims, Christians, Sikhs, Buddhist and Zoroastrians (Parsis)], from within the 27% reservation for OBCs in Civil Posts and Services under the Government of India and admission to Central Educational Institutions.


A Division bench of Hon’ble High Court of Andhra Pradesh, Hyderabad, in its judgement dated 28-05-2012 has set aside the carving out of a sub-quota of 4.5% in favour of minorities out of the 27% reservation for OBCs. The matter is presently sub-judice in the Hon’ble Supreme Court of India. Subsequently, Jains community was also declared as Minority Community vide notification dated 27th January, 2014.

This Information was given by the Minister of State , Ministry of Minority Affairs Shri Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi in reply to a question in Lok Sabha today.
