Quotas in Maharashtra can lead to more unrest

Granting reservations to the Marathas in Maharashtra might also catalyse similar agitations by the Jats and Patidars in BJP ruled states, such as Uttar Pradesh, Haryana and Gujarat. How other communities react to the policy within Maharashtra is another potential fault line.

We need a better understanding of intra-caste inequalities

While average figures for the broad caste groups confirm to the received wisdom, with upper castes being most well off and STs being the worst off, intra-caste or jati based trends do not always conform to this broad hierarchy.
Solapur: Police personnel clash with the Maratha Kranti Morcha protesters during their district bandh called for reservations in jobs and education. While surveys from sources such as National Sample Survey Office (NSSO) give statistics on consumption, employment and asset levels of broad caste groups – Scheduled Caste (SC), Scheduled Tribe (ST), Other Backward Classes (OBC) and others – there is no information at the intra-caste or jati level about these things.(PTI)
