The Chairman of National Commission for Backward Classes, Justice V. Eshwaraiah while delivering a guest lecture on the “Creamy layer, Inclusion and Exclusion of OBCs” in the Department of Political Science, University of Hyderabad (UoH), said that there is a need to have a constitutional status to NCBC. He said that due to lack of constitutional status so many constraints have been emerging in the implementation of 27% OBC reservations as a result, even after two decades of Supreme Court judgment for 27% of reservations in central government, but it has not achieved even 10%.

He emphasized that the OBC organizations, associations and Politicians must fight for the legal status to the NCBC. As of now commission is having power only to recommend for the inclusion of OBC list. In order to provide social justice in a downward percolation process there is a need to classify the OBC quota into three categories and to overcome the constraints of creamy layer. He also said that he is going to make a recommendation for the liberal creamy layer policy to facilitate all classes within the OBC category to the parliamentary committee on OBCs and Prime Minster.

The lecture was presided over by Prof. Sudharshanam, HoD, Department of Political Science. Guest was introduced by Dr. E.Venkatesu and a vote thanks was proposed by G. Kiran Kumar, a student of Political Science Department.
