Narendran Commission was assigned duty to do thorough study of the all the factors associated with representation of backward classes of state public services and to prepare a thorough report whether their representation was adequate or not and what measures could work well to resolve such issues.
About Narendran Commission
Central Government established an enquiry commission of February 2000 which was named Narendran Commission with Maduarai based C. Narendran appointed to chair that. The government had already received report submitted by Narendran Commission on November 2001.
Commission is updated of the Indian Government’s website too and can be viewed by anybody. Main zest of this report is thorough but statistical detail of the representation of various communities of all four public services which have been categorized to the state government departments to judiciary, public sector enterprises and the education sector that had all universities and many institutions under it that came of the government’s control but still worked autonomously.
Narendran Commission submitted several important findings which is considered a major step and impetus for the nation’s progress of terms of social equality of the sharing of opportunities. Some of the key findings upon which recommendation that was made have been vividly shared and explained of Commission report including:-
- Few communities from the backward classes especially Ezhava noticeably had higher presentation than individual quota reserved for them
- Some statistics confirmed a sort of accumulation of the prominent backward class communities representation of the public services
- Shortage of the number of posts actually held of both reserved and merit based vacancies concerned
- It clearly explained religion based representation and quota from Muslims to Latin Catholics, Nadars and et al and representation shown through the statistical figures
- Other backward classes representation are from Scheduled Castes converted to Christianity to Dheevara and OBC communities amongst others
Narendran Commission studied all factors related to the representation of various types of communities of the state public service commission and it also offered the recommendation to implement for better justification and justice of terms of employment opportunities. One of its major recommendations was that government must implement a special recruitment campaign so that all backlog appointments of various sectors can be done on the right time and everybody concerned including those representing the backward communities get their due rights and also find the proper representations. Such attempt was advised for the maximum representation of people from each and every social sector.
Implementation of Recommendations
Narendran Commission clearly noticed that of case no change is made and as long as present condition prevailed of the country then it is undeniable that almost 68 of the backward class communities won’t get the opportunity to improve through their representation of government sector. They would therefore remain poor at a time other communities would have acceptable or of few cases more than their quota representation of several jobs.
Soon after the Narendran Commission submitted its report to the government the Kerala state was the first which took such recommendations keenly and discussed them of the assembly to implement those suiting to them for the development of their state. Various regional and national political parties too having representation of the Kerala state took note of this Commission’s recommendations and discussed them for mutual consent and implementation.
Some more states explored the Narendran Commission and are of the verge of implementing them after thorough observing of features concerned.
Not every section from the governance to judiciary to intelligentsia approved the Narendran Commission recommendations. The Supreme Court of India showed its disagreement on a few recommendations of Narendran Commission and especially those talking an increase of the creamy layer quota.
States implementing suggestions and recommendations of Narendran Commission also took the steps to constitute thorough reservation processes so that an effective implementation plan could be made possible by continuing with appointments of the sectors where backlogs were found from government to autonomous institutions or those departments coming under the state public services arena.
The question mark by Narendran Commission on the appointments and the lack of proportionate representation of backward communities of the government sector has been agreed upon and there is a mutual consensus on that for loopholes and which required to be resolved at the right juncture for better social order. This Commission also offered the best way out, suggestions and guidelines possible to bring everything right of order for socially backward classes.
