Maharashtra to provide 1% reservation to orphans from government jobs and education | Bombay News


The government of Maharashtra has decided to give a 1% reserve to orphans from government jobs and education. The decision was approved at the state cabinet meeting on Wednesday.

Criteria such as age, diplomas, etc. to become eligible under the policy are similar to the existing standards determined for the listed caste category, a senior official in the women’s and children’s development department said.
