Guv returns file on work quota for  SC/ST contractors

Governor Vajubhai Vala has sent back the proposed ordinance seeking reservation for SC/STs contractors in awarding government works up to Rs 50 lakh.

Sources said Vala had returned the file to the Law and Parliamentary Affairs department on Friday, seeking further clarification on the matter.

The state Cabinet had on April 20 taken a decision to accord 18% reservation to SC contractors and 7% reservation to ST contractors.

Proposing an ordinance, the Finance department had sent the file to the Law and Parliamentary Affairs department, which in turn had forwarded it to Raj Bhavan around 10 days ago, sources said. However, there is no clarity on why the governor returned the file to the government.
