[ZESTCaste] No ATR on Ranganath Commission report

No ATR on Ranganath Commission report


New Delhi, Dec 16 (PTI) The government today ruled out bringing out
any action taken report (ATR) on Ranganath Mishra Commission report,
which has reportedly recommended reservation for minorities and SC
status to Muslim and Christian Dalits.

However, the report will be tabled in Parliament in this session itself.

"There will be no ATR on Ranganath Commission as there is no
requirement of it, as of now, since the commission was not constituted
under the Commission of Inquiry Act, " Minister for Minority Affairs
Salman Khursid told reporters outside Parliament.

Asked when the report will be tabled Khursid said "not tomorrow". He
said that tabling of report on Friday is also unlikely thereby
indicating that it could be placed before both the Houses of
Parliament only on the last day of the winter session -- Monday.
