Andhra Pradesh to include Kapu community in OBC list with 5% quota

Andhra Pradesh assembly approves Kapu reservation bill

It is more than fifty percent limit prescribed by the Hon'ble Supreme Court.

However, the implementation of the quota rests with the Centre as the Act has to be included in the 9th Schedule of the Constitution in view of the total reservations in Andhra Pradesh that now touches 55%, exceeding the 50% ceiling stipulated by the Supreme Court.

"Inclusion of Kapus has been a long-pending demand, and the Telugu Desam Party (TDP), in its election manifesto in 2014, promised to fulfil their demand. We will send this bill to the Centre and will ask them to include this reservation in schedule 9, so that it becomes legitimate", the chief minister added.

Based on the report of Manjunath Commission, the cabinet held on Friday made a decision to extend the reservation to Telaga, Kapu, Ontari and Balija communities also.

Deputy Chief Minister (Revenue) KE Krishnamurthy appealed to the BCs stating that there was nothing to worry over Kapu reservations, as it would not affect the BC quota. Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu said the Central Government's approval was needed to push the initiative of providing reservation in the education and employment sectors. We will send this bill to the centre. "The state government will give 5 per cent quota to the community in the education and employment sectors". However, it was only in February 2016 that Naidu set up the Manjunatha Commission to recommend quota for Kapus.

Furthermore, it was said, the state already has 29% reservation for Backward Castes under A, B, C, D and E categories.

As of now the reservations for Backward Classes, Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes is - 25 per cent, 15 per cent and 6 per cent respectively.
