The state social justice and empowerment department issued a notification in this regard after approval from the cabinet.

It was a long pending demand of the Jat community people residing in both the districts to include them in the OBC list.

So far, Jats residing in districts barring Dholpur and Bharatpur were getting the benefit of the OBC quota.

The stir by Jats demanding reservation for community members was called off in Bharatpur district on June 24 after the state government's assurance that it would consider including them in the OBC list.

The decision came after a meeting between Jat leaders and state government officials at IG Bharatpur office.

The Jat members held a mahapanchayat and began the stir by blocking railway tracks demanding reservation for the community members of Dholpur and Bharatpur districts.

The agitation was intensified with thousands of members of the community blocking railway tracks and roads at more than 20 places in Bharatpur which affected train and vehicular movement in the area.
