The commission will have a one-year term and has been asked to suggest the quantum of reservation and criteria for identification of economically backward classes among casts and communities other than the Scheduled Castes, Scheduled Tribes and Other Backward Classes (SC/ST/OBC), which already have reservation, according to an official release.
