Garos benefit from the reservation policy in districts, HYC demands rectification of the OM


SHILLONG, June 21: The Hynñiewtrep Youth Council (HYC) has demanded the Government to rectify Para 2(f) of the Office Memorandum issued in the month of May this year, which highlights the reservation policy which has been followed from 1972.

The HYC has put forward this demand before the Deputy Chief Minister of Meghalaya, Prestone Tynsong who has promised to give due importance to the matter to rectify and to also consult with the Chief Minister of Meghalaya.

The President of the HYC, Robertjune Kharjahrin said that as per the reservation policy which was issued in 1973, jobs which are not transferable from one district to another the recruitment process of which is done through the DSC and departments in the district, which shows that for the residents in areas of Garo Hills, 80% of the jobs are reserved for the domicile of those districts, and the same applies for the Khasi-Jaiñtia Hills that is 80% is reserved for the domicile of the district, however the problem is that in Garo Hills, the domiciles are Garos while in the Khasi-Jaiñtia Hills, lakhs of Garos are also domiciles of the district which means that the reservation has to be 40% each.

He said that the demand from the Government to rectify this Office Memorandum is because there are lakhs from the Garo community residing in the Khasi Hills, and this will bring about an unpleasant taste when as it is the reservation policy is already highly disproportionate.
