Justice G. Rohini Commission

 Context: The Justice G. Rohini Commission, tasked with sub-categorising Other Backward Classes (OBC) caste groups, has submitted its report to the Ministry of Social Justice and Empowerment after nearly six years.

  • Formed in 2017 and led by former Delhi High Court Chief Justice G. Rohini, the commission aimed to examine the concentration of reservation and benefits among dominant OBC caste groups.
  • Based on its findings, the commission was to suggest a breakdown of the over 2,600 caste groups on the Central OBC list to ensure a more equitable redistribution of benefits.


Although the report is not out,   the commission’s recommendations may involve categorizing the caste groups into broad categories, with the dominant castes receiving the smallest share of the 27% reservation, and historically marginalized groups getting a larger share.
