REF: West Bengal Backward Classes (Other than Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes) (Reservation of Vacancies in Services and Posts) Act.

West Bengal Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes (Reservation of Vacancies in Services and Posts) Rules, 1976.

There is no Act to guide the principles of reservation for OBCs. Notification No. 347-TW / EC dated 13-07-1994 was the first Notification to introduce the matter of reservation for OBCs in services and posts under State Govt. control. 5% posts were reserved then for OBC. This has been increased to 7% and presently 7% posts are reserved for OBCs.

Covering all reservation quotas for SC, ST, & OBC, one 100 point roster has been prescribed which is used to ensure reservation of services and posts for SC, ST & OBC in West Bengal.

For reservation in promotion in respect of OBCs, 50 point roster is not required to be maintained for OBCs.
