A sub-quota of 4.5% reservation for minority communities as defined under Section 2 (c) of National Commission for Minorities Act, 1992 [viz. Muslims, Christians, Sikhs, Buddhist and Zoroastrians (Parsis)] was carved out of the 27% reservation for the Other Backward Classes (OBCs) in admission to Central Government institutions and in Civil Posts under the Government of India and this was notified by the Government on 22-12-2011 to be effective from 01-01-2012.

The matter is presently sub-judice in the Hon’ble Supreme Court of India.
