New Delhi: Placing of Action Taken Report (ATR) in the Parliament is mandatory in the case of Commissions set up under Commissions of Enquiry Act 1952. As National Commission for Religious and Linguistic Minorities (NCRLM), commonly known as Ranganath Misra Commission was set up under Government Resolution No1-11/2004-MC (D), dated 29th October, 2004, the ATR is not mandatory.

Giving this information in written reply to a question in the Lok Sabha on Monday, Vincent H. Pala, Minister of State for Minority Affairs, however, said the recommendations contained in the report are under consideration of the Central Government. The report was laid in both the Houses of Parliament on 18th December 2009.

He also said that since recommendations contained in the report are under consideration of the Central Government, “the question of States providing reservation of 10% for Backward Muslims based on the recommendations of the NCRLM Report is premature at this stage.”
