The Haryana Cabinet today unanimously passed the Jat Reservation Bill in the Vidhan Sabha. The bill proposes to include Jats and five other castes in backward classes by bifurcation.
The Haryana Cabinet on Monday passed a Bill to provide reservation in government jobs and education to Jats who had set an April 3 deadline for their demand to be met following their violent agitation last month.
Jats had last month launched a stir demanding reservation in BC category.

The draft Bill on reservation to Jats and four other castes was cleared at a Cabinet meeting under the chairmanship of Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar here, official sources said.
The Bill is likely to be tabled in the ongoing budget session of the state Assembly, which is scheduled to continue till March 31, they said.
The BJP government had assured that it would bring the Bill in the ongoing Budget session. Jat leaders had announced that no protest would be held till April 3 if the state government got the Bill passed before that.
The Bill proposes reservation for Jats and four other castes — Jat Sikhs, Rors, Bishnois and Tyagis — by creating a new classification in the Backward Classes category, sources said.
The government plans to provide 10 per cent reservation in educational institutions and Class-III and IV government jobs for these communities, they said.
It has proposed 6 per cent reservation for Jats and the four other castes in Class-I and Class-II jobs, sources said.
Apart from giving reservation to Jats, Haryana government has also proposed to bring a separate Bill for the setting up of a permanent Haryana Backward Classes Commission, they said.
Jat leaders have been demanding reservation in the existing Backward Classes (BC) category.
The BC quota is bifurcated into two — BC-A and BC-B — having 16 and 11 per cent reservation, respectively.
Jats had last month launched a stir demanding reservation in BC category. The agitation, which had taken a violent turn, left 30 people dead and 320 persons injured and resulted in huge damage to property.
Jat leaders have told the government that in case the reservation breaches the overall 50 per cent ceiling, then the government should include the proposed legislation in the ninth Schedule of the Constitution to save it from judicial review.
“We want that whatever Bill is tabled should be legally tenable,” All India Jat Aarakshan Sangharsh Samiti President Yashpal Malik had said.
The decision that no protest would be held till April 3 if the reservation Bill is passed in the ongoing session was announced by Malik here after talks with Haryana Chief Secretary DS Dhesi and DGP Yashpal Singhal on March 18.
