Question

I was born on the new year's eve of 1979 in India during the tenure of India's 4th Prime Minister. I had a motto of helping the 'Depressed Class'. In 1990, the 7th Prime Minister of India announced that the country would need to follow the rules established by me. Many people revolted against me and wanted to discard me, but the apex court allowed me to stay in India. Who am I?
  1. The Mandal Commission
  2. BP Mandal
  3. Staff Selection Commission
  4. Chief Labour Commission


Solution

The correct option is A The Mandal Commission
Morarji Desai's government established the Mandal Commission on January 1, 1979. It is officially known as the Socially and Educationally Backward Classes Commission. The Mandal Commission developed 11 criteria to recognise the Other Backward Classes. The Commission submitted its report on December 31, 1980. In 1990, VP Singh announced that the recommendations of the Commission would be implemented. This was followed by violent protests. Later, in 1992, the Supreme Court upheld the Commission after a few amendments.
