The representation further states:

2. That the State Government of Telangana and Andhra Pradesh are providing 4% separate reservation Under BC-E Category to the 14 Categories of Socially and Educationally Backward Classes of Muslim of the both States.

3. That the Government of India is providing 27% Reservations to the Other Backward Classes (OBCs) and the Muslim Backward classes are unable to get their proper share in Central Educational Institutions as well as in Employment in Central Services, as there is no Sub- Categorization of Backward Classes in the Central list of OBCs. Our ratio is less than 1% in Central institutions, Civil Services due to Non Categorization OF OBC LIST. The backward classes of Muslim are unable to compete with other Backward Classes as well.
