Welcome to Uttar Pradesh State Commission for Backward Classes

Special facilities and reservations for the backward sections of the society have been provided in the Constitution of India so that the overall development and standard of living of these castes/classes can be equivalent to the other classes.

For this, the Government of India constituted V.P. Mandal Commission. In regards to its recommendations of the nine-member special constitution bench of the Hon'ble Supreme Court in its landmark judgment 1992 in the case "Indira Sawhney Vs. Union of India" issued a mandate that In relation to the inclusion or exclusion of castes in other backward classes, every State Government and the Central Government shall constitute such tribunals or commissions which will make their recommendations to the Government, and the Government will generally be bound to accept them.
