The government also ordered that the seats which were reserved for the scheduled caste (SCs), scheduled tribe (STs) and other backward classes (OBCs) categories earlier will not be reserved for the same categories this year.

"Out of total gram panchayat seats, 330 will be reserved for STs, 12,045 for SCs and 15,712 for OBCs. This reservation is on the basis of the percentage of their population," Additional Chief Secretary Manoj Kumar Singh said.

It can be noted that the Yogi Adityanath government had nullified the 2015 reservation order of the Akhilesh Yadav-led Samajwadi Party government. The order by the Yogi government has now left the prevailing rotational seat reservation in rural local bodies null and void.
