Experts warn that including Marathas among Other Backward Classes (OBC) in order to increase their reservations may actually harm the community. Currently, Marathas benefit the most from the quota for Economically Backward Sections (EWS), but if they are included among OBCs, their reservation share may decrease significantly. Some suggest that Marathas should instead insist on the EWS quota, as their claim of backwardness has been repeatedly rejected by previous commissions. Others argue that the demand for OBC inclusion is politically motivated and that Marathas' actual population is around 11%, not 32% as claimed.
