Ministry quota derived from Mandol – Khurshid

Union Minister for Minority Affairs Salman Khurshid clarified in Parliament that the govt. had used the Mandel formula to arrive at the figure of 4.5 per cent sub quota for minorities within 27 per cent OBC quota. The minister said the govt. had taken into account the recommendations of the Ranganath Misra-headed National Commission for Religious and Linguistic Minorities (NCRLH) as well as the Rajinder Sachar Committee, both of which acknowledged the pervasive backwardness among Muslims.
