Arasu included in Backward Classes 2A category

Karnataka govt decided to include the Arasu community under backward classes 2A category.

Bangalore: Karnataka government on Friday decided
to include the Arasu community under backward classes 2A
category giving its members "academic benefits" and
reservation in recruitment.

Briefing reporters after a Cabinet meeting, Law and
Parliamentary Affairs Minister S Suresh Kumar said the
community`s population was about 40,000.

They had actually been included under 2A in 1977 but
subsequently had been dropped from the list by "various
backward classes commissions".

In 2010, a committee headed by former Karnataka Backward
Classes Commission, C S Dwarakanath, had recommended in a
special report their inclusion in 2A category, Suresh Kumar
noted.
