What are your views about parallel reservation for orphans in the general category in Maharashtra?The Maharashtra Government has recently announced that there will be 1% reservation for orphans in government jobs and education. It is termed as parallel reservation which means that out of the total jobs available under the general category, 1% will be reserved only for orphans. The caste based reservations in the state has already reached 52% which will not get affected in any manner by the newly announced reservation for orphans. This move will help those orphans who are unaware of their caste or don't have any documentary proof regarding the same.
The Chief Minister of Maharashtra had come across the case of a young woman who had passed the Maharashtra Public Services Commission (MPSC) examination and had secured sufficient marks to qualify in the reserved categories, but she had no caste certificate as she was an orphan.
