Deadline of OBC Survey Extended Till June 6

Bhubaneswar: Due to the current Heat Wave conditions prevailing in the state, the Odisha government extended the deadline for the OBC survey till June 6. As per the earlier notification, the OBC survey was to be held from May 1 to May 26. But, due to the heat wave it will now continue till June 6. The enumerators recruited by the government would go to the houses and conduct the survey even on holidays.

Excluding Brahman, Karan, ST and SC, all the other 208 castes are to be included in the survey. Apart from the door-to-door survey, Anganwadi centres and PDS points are being used as survey centres. The heads of the families can submit data about their family members at these centres.

Currently, Odisha has reservation quotas of 22.5 per cent, 16.25 per cent and 11.25 for SC, ST and OBC categories respectively. It remains to be seen whether the reservation quotas for the OBCs will be increased after the completion of the survey.
