The Committee was constituted by the state government on June 13 in compliance with the peace understanding signed between Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje and representatives of the Gujjar Reservation Action Committee led by its convenor Col Kirodi Singh Bainsla on June 4 after a week-long pitched agitation.

The agitation launched by the action committee throughout the state from May 29 had witnessed wide spread violence, arson, damages to railway tracks and police firings at a number of places.

The violence and police firings had left 25 people dead and scores of others injured.

The committee was initially accorded a term of three months for submission of the report but later the state government extended to September 15, the term by three months to enable it to accomplish the task by December 15.

The Gujjars' demand of ST status was countered by Meena community loutfits and several other tribal groups in the state and they had ddemanded disbanding of the Chopra Committee.
