PM Modi will be remembered as a champion of social justice: AIOBCSAs to PM seeking Caste Census

New Delhi: The All India OBC Students Association (AIOBCSA) has sent a letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, seeking his intervention to initiate a cast based census as a step to understand the social and educational backwardness of the Other Backward community.

The letter implies that the Caste based Census would help to understand the backwardness of the community, which in turn could help the Union government to churn out schemes to address the issues the community is being faced with.

The letter signed by Gowd Kiran Kumar, President, AIOBCSA, also wanted the Prime Minister to extend a 52% reservation to the OBCs for education and employment.

The AIOBCSA wanted the government to introduce effective policies for the OBCs in proportion to their population, which could only be attained through the Caste Census, which is said to be a historical due, as the country has not held a full-fledged Caste Census after 1931.

The letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi can be read below:

9th Nov 2022.


Shri. Narendra Modi Ji,

Hon'ble Prime Minister of India,

Government of India.

Subject: Request to Conduct Caste Census and extend 52% Reservations for OBCs in admissions and employment reg.

Respected Shri. Narendra Modi Ji,

On behalf of the All India OBC Students Association (AIOBCSA), we request you conduct Caste Census and extend reservations to Social and Educational Backward Classes according to their Social and Educational backwardness percentage. The Caste Census is a historical due, and the Country has not conducted a full-fledged Caste Census after 1931.

It will be a historical opportunity for your Government to make a favourable decision to conduct Caste Census to understand the grassroots situation. The data will also help the government make effective policy decisions for designing and implementing social welfare schemes for OBCS.

We strongly believe that all except OBCs and other Social Categories are getting their due share of reservation. This fact will strongly impact the future of OBCs.

We strongly feel that you will be remembered for conducting the Caste Census as one of the champions of social justice in the hearts of OBCs. If we are not conducting Caste Census, we will lose a historical opportunity to empower OBCs.

Thanking you, sir.

Yours faithfully

Gowd Kiran Kumar, President, AIOBCSA.
