The chairman of the Oversight Committee on reservations, M Veerrappa Moily, on Saturday said five sub-committees constituted by him on the issue would submit their reports by July 31.
The sub-committees related to IITs, IIMs, agricultural institutes, central universities and health sciences have the country's 'best brains' as members, Moily told reporters in Udupi.
On the basis of reports submitted by them, the committee will frame a comprehensive roadmap for achieving "knowledge society based on inclusive policy" and put forward its recommendations to the government by August 31, he said.
The Oversight Committee had met twice and Moily will hold discussions with the members of the sub-committees on June eight.
Strongly supporting the proposed 27 per cent reservations for OBCs in higher educational institutions, Moily said the government favoured increasing the number of seats so that general students are not impacted by reservations. The new reservation policy for OBCs will be introduced from 2007-08, he said.
